Gentlemen, we are honoured on this occasion by the presence of one to whom both England and America are greatly indebted for his continued, earnest, and sincere exertions during the last three years to maintain peace and good understanding between these two great kindred countries.
That gentleman descends from a line of statesmen. His grandfather was considered worthy to be the successor to the Presidential chair of George Washington; his father was the sixth President of the United States; and he himself is the honoured representative of my country in Great Britain.
His Excellency the American Minister: London, England, http: Using the former blockade-runner as an armed cruiser, the Confederates planned to carry the war directly to the Union's coast. Tallahassee was a first-class, extremely fast and well-built vessel.
Her two engines could be worked either together or separately. Colonel John Taylor Wood was the Captain. Tallahassee in one month's time accounted for the destruction of three ships, three barks, one brig, and twenty schooners.

The home guard unit was placed under the command of Foote, a well known and respected patriotic citizen who had served his town well on numerous prior occasions.
The guns at Fort Edgecomb were duly fixed at the parapet of the old fort and ranged for effective service.
Daily guards were set and relief for night watch made for about a month until it was known that Tallahassee had been chased away from the Maine coast. Tallahassee lived out the rest of the Civil War, which had only a few months to run before the surrender of the Confederate army.
