    One thought on “Confederate Corsair”

    1. This book was not well written. The Author seems to change subject in middle of a paragraph. He adds little asides in the middle of the paragraph. He covered Lincoln's murder in the Ford's Theater in one sentence. He jumps around without connecting his storyline. It goes on and on.
