In is paper will be found not only the details of the achievements of the former blockade runners, but also descriptions of the vessels themselves. Their development, construction, and modification for service will be discussed, along with their important strengths and weaknesses and the ways that these affected the performance of their duties. It is felt that a complete understanding of the conduct of a war must take into consideration the capabilities of the weapons with which it was fought, and the author hopes that this paper will contribute in some small way to the achievement of such an understanding of our Civil War.
