MCCWRT Trivia, Things I Learned-- Part 1: What Was Different About the Confederate States Naval Academy?
These were just some of the things I learned from the December 22, 2018, McHenry County Civil War Round Table Trivia discussion group meeting.
** Frank C. ought not be allowed to e-mail in his questions.
** We'll have to do it again next year. Lots of discussions ensued. We were even more on target than usual.
** The Confederate Navy wore white uniforms during the summer months.
** The Confederate Navy's Academy was unique in that all learning was done on a ship (the CSS Patrick Henry) and at times the ship was engaged with the enemy.
** Four Union generals ran unsuccessfully for president over the years. We all knew, of curse, McClelland. But also Hancock, Fremont and Butler.
