Hearn, Chester G.:
Ellet's Brigade: The Strangest Outfit of All - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 9780807131862

[ED: Taschenbuch], [PU: LOUISIANA STATE UNIV PR], Soon after the start of the Civil War, during the naval buildup on the central Mississippi River, celebrated engineer Charles Ellet, Jr., formed the Ram Fleet under U.S. secretary of war Edwin M. Stanton. Perhaps the most bizarre unit organized by the Union, the rams were shunned by both the army and the navy as useless instruments of wax. However, on June 6, 1862, they proved their worth by defeating the Confederate ironclads at Memphis while the U.S. Navy simply watched. In this lively study, the first on the rams since 1905, Chester G. Hearn details the formation and wartime exploits of Ellet's fleet, reviving the history of this fascinating but forgotten brigade. Though a staunch supporter of the Union, Charles Ellet entered the war mainly to test a theory the Navy Department rejected -- that fast, unarmed rams could win battles against conventional gunboats. He manned his original Ram Fleet with daring civilian boatmen, a small sprinkling of infantry to act as boat guards, and thirteen family members as officers, including his brother, Alfred, who assumed command when Charles was mortally wounded at Memphis. The navy had no interest in Ellet's rams and no army commander wanted to be burdened with a small fleet of unarmed riverboats he was forbidden to use as transports, so Stanton retained control of the flotilla himself, leading to months of command confusion. The force nobody wanted soon grew to include the Mississippi Marine Brigade, another flotilla of fast riverboats formed by Alfred Ellet to transport the brigade's mounted companies to trouble spots along the river. Although the unit performed some useful services, it often followed its own agenda, plundering plantationsand small towns under the pretext of fighting guerrillas. General Grant's subordinates, unable to control the brigade, ultimately disbanded it in the late summer of 1864. The army lost or destroyed many of the brigade's records upon its dissolution, but through painstakin Versandfertig in 2-4 Wochen, DE, [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot, offene Rechnung (Vorkasse vorbehalten)

Stanton. Perhaps the most bizarre unit organized by the Union, the rams were shunned by both the army and navy as superfluous instruments of war. However, on June 6, 1862, they proved their worth by defeating the Confederate River Defense Fleet ironclads at Memphis while the U.S. Navy simply watched. In this lively study, Chester G. Hearn details the formation and wartime exploits of Ellet's fleet, reviving the history of this fascinating but forgotten brigade. 19th century,americas,civil war,history,military,military science,naval,naval operations,state and local History, Louisiana State University Press
