CSS Sumter, a 473-ton bark-rigged screw steam cruiser, was built as the merchant steamship Habana at Philadelphia in 1859 for McConnell's New Orleans & Havana Line. She was later renamed Gibraltar or Gibraltar of Liverpool....During almost 2 years on the high seas commanding the Alabama, Semmes burned, sank, or captured and sold 55 Union vessels. But on June 19, 1864, the Alabama's career abruptly ended at Cherbourg, France, where the U.S.S. Kearsarge had blockaded it. In an ill-advised burst of chivalric resolve, Semmes had challenged the better-equipped Kearsarge to combat. Superficially the antagonists were evenly matched; in reality the odds heavily favored the Kearsarge. After an engagement of about half an hour, the Alabama struck its colors and then sank. Semmes was rescued by an English yacht, one of many that had come to witness the engagement........£45.00
