Alone at Christmas. In 1864.

     Christmas can be joyous...or not so much...depending one where you are and how close that is to your loved ones.

     154 years ago Confederate sailors onboard the CSS Alabama were thousands of miles from home. Bob Corley and I told that story on the blog we created as part of a planned, but never produced, documentary. 

You can read that blog entry HERE
This is a photo of the actual logbook in which Semmes wrote about it. It is part of the collection at the Alabama Department of Archives and History.
