Special Announcements:
A Confederate blockade runner could pay for his ship with just two successful voyages.

"I think we understand what military fame is; to be killed on the field of battle and have our names spelled wrong in the newspapers."
                                                ~ General William Tecumseh Sherman

" I never could quite enjoy being a "Conquering Hero."...  I can fight for a cause I know to be just, can risk my own life and the lives of those in my keep, without a thought of the consequences; but when we've conquered, when we've downed the enemy and won the victory, I don't want to hurrah.  I want to go off all by myself and be sorry for them."
                                                                       ~ General George E. Picket,
                                                         in a letter to his future wife, Sally,
                                                                                                   June 24, 1863

More than sixty-eight American Revolutions could have been financed for the estimated cost of the Civil War.
