About the Book

Learn about the last great assault of the Civil War.

Author Russell W. Blount, Jr., provides an eyewitness account that documents the events in Mobile, Alabama, in 1865. His vivid narrative of the turbulent siege of nearby Spanish Fort and the subsequent battle for Mobile brings to life some of the forgotten people of the struggle through their diaries and letters. Considered the last major battle of the Civil War, in no other conflict of the time was the lack of rapid communication more tragic than in the campaign for the city. The assault began hours after Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered and the efforts to capture the port ravaged a city that had remained nearly unscathed through five brutal years of war, leaving behind a devastated citizenry.
