Our Confederate Ancestors: Running the Yankee Blockade: A Daring Daytime Run by the Little Hattie

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


 This map of the Union attack on Ft. Fisher in Jan. 1865 shows the route the Little Hattie would have taken.

Signal-Officer Daniel Shepherd Stevenson has written for the archives of the Daughters of the Confederacy at Wilmington, N. C., a sketch, from which the following is taken: In the soft, mild days of October, 1864, while we lingered at our cottage by the sea, on Confederate Point, I witnessed the most exciting and most interesting scene of my life. It was during dark nights that blockade-runners always made their trips, and the bar was shelled whenever one was expected. The “Little Hattie,” a blockade-runner, on which my nephew, D. S. Stevenson, was signal-officer, was expected, and the bar was vigorously shelled each night to keep the blockading fleet at a safe distance.
