Shaw examines a little studied naval raid and engagement that occurred in the second half of 1863. A Confederate commander of the CSS Florida sailed his vessel north from Brazil and sank 20 Union merchant vessels. This act of piracy caused serious panic in the North leading to nearly 40 union navel vessels seeking to stop the actions of one Confederate raider.
