dc.description.abstractFrom 1861-1865, the United States of America was in the grip of a civil war. It was fought on land and at sea. One participant was August Sebelin, a young German sailor. Sebelin entered the war to enhance his navigational skills in order to to Germany someday and better serve his country. Sebelin's wartime experiences the U.S.S. Connecticut are recorded in a diary he kept while in service. It is observations which are the basis for this study.
