There is a large (and ever-growing) collection of websites that deal with the maritime side of the American Civil War and blockade running. As a service to our colleagues and the public alike, we would like to highlight a few of these sites that we've found most interesting. The Denbigh Project and the Institute of Nautical Archaeology does not, however, explicitly endorse any of these sites or guarantee the accuracy of the information they provide.

Wreck of U.S.S. Harvest Moon
Historical and current information on the wreck of Admiral John A. Dahlgren's flagship, sunk by a mine in March 1865 near Georgetown, South Carolina.

American Coast Defense Forts
A website dedicated to the coastal defenses of the United States, including those on the Gulf of Mexico.

C.S.S. Alabama Digital Collection
A website dedicated to the Laird-built Confederate raider Alabama, hosted by the University of Alabama. Includes images and descriptions of that ship's sinking of U.S.S. Hatteras near Galveston in January 1863, and U.S. Consul Thomas Dudley's notes on Alabama's construction at Birkenhead.

Monitor National Marine Sanctuary
Offical website of the governmental agency overseeing the protection and investigation of the wreck of U.S.S. Monitor, the world's first ironclad turreted warship. See also the online exhibit "Monitor: History & Legacy" from the Mariner's Museum.

Remote Sensing Investigations of the Civil War Blockade Runner Ivanhoe
A project by Florida State University to survey the wreck of a famous blockade runner wreck near Mobile using remote-sensing technology.

The "Brownwater Navy"
A comprehensive website chronicling the activities of the U.S. Navy's forces on the Western Rivers (i.e., the Mississippi and its tributaries) and the Gulf of Mexico, 1861-65. Includes lists of ships, muster rolls and a chronology of events and actions.
