First words
On April 17, 1861, four days after the fall of Fort Sumter, a U.S. Navy squadron arrived to reinforce one of the last Federal bastions in the South: Fort Pickens, at the entrance to Pensacola Bay on Florida's Gulf Coast. ("Contested Outpost on the Gulf Coast")
"The morn, the fleet, the men, seemed inspired with victory, and moved forward, with the battle half won by their fearless and invincible spirit. It was such a sight as never before disturbed the tranquil waters of America."
- Private William P. Derry, 27th Massachusetts, en route to Roanoke Island

All through the summer of 1861, Brigadier General Ambrose E. Burnside was a man in search of a mission.
