The Union inland navy that became the Mississippi Squadron is one of the least studied aspects of the Civil War. Joiner (history, Louisiana State University) gives an account of the Civil War's western riverine action. He looks at the lives of sailors and their commanders who fought from the Mississippi River and its major tributaries, and describes the highly improvised sloops and their stifling conditions. B&w maps and historical photos and illustrations are included. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Rowman and Littllefield
Mr. Lincoln's Brown Water Navy: The Mississippi Squadron describes the Civil War as fought on the rivers of the West. The ironclads and gunboats protected army forces and convoyed much needed supplies to far-flung Federal forces. They patrolled thousands of miles of rivers and fought battles that were every bit as harrowing as land engagements. This book is about the men who fought under these conditions and the highly improvised boats in which they fought.
