Rebels on the Great Lakes

Articles exists here and there covering Confederate operations designed to free Johnson's Island prisoners, but  Rebels on the Great Lakes: Confederate Naval Commando Operations Launched from Canada, 1863-1864 seemingly holds promise in covering these events at unprecedented depth.  I've never heard of the publisher Dundurn and so have no idea of the quality of works they typically put out, but author John Bell is a senior archivist at Library and Archives Canada and has published a biography of Confederate naval officer John Taylor Wood titled Confederate Seadog (McFarland, 2002).

  1. Now this looks interesting. Something I've never heard of before so I'll be checking this one out.
