Hide Profile

C.S.S. Alabama was a screw sloop-of-war built for the Confederate States Navy at Birkenhead, England, in 1862 by John Laird Sons and Company. Alabama served as a successful commerce raider, attacking Union merchant and naval ships over the course of her two-year career, during which she never anchored in a Southern port. She was sunk in battle by the U.S.S. Kearsarge in June 1864 at the Battle of Cherbourg outside the port of Cherbourg, France.
