First words
"It is essentially necessary that the Navy should at this time put forth all its strength and demonstrate to the country and to foreign powers its usefulness and capability in protecting and supporting the Government and the Union."
- Gideon Welles, U.S. Secretary of the Navy, September 18, 1861

The United States and the Confederate States faced many urgent and perplexing problems when, with the surrender of Fort Sumter on April 13, 1861, they suddenly found themselves at war and utterly unprepared to fight.
