The USS Susquehanna was one of the Union's few deep sea warships and was in action throughout the Civil War. She took part in many engagements such as the Peninsula Campaign and the Battle for Mobile. Moreover, she captured several Confederate raiders. More than being simply the story of one vessel, this work gives an account of the workings of the Union blockade of the Confederacy.
