Officers Held as Hostages for the Privateers Taken Aboard the Savannah

As Colonel Michael Corcoran was held as hostage for Walter W. Smith, prize-master of the schooner Enchantress, who was convicted of piracy in the United States Court in October, 1861, so the officers shown on this page, were held as hostages for the privateers taken aboard the Savannah. They were to receive exactly the same treatment as that meted out to the privateers. General Neff was lieutenant-colonel of the Second Kentucky at that time, General Revere major of the Twentieth Massachusetts, General Vogdes a major in the regular artillery, and General Lee was colonel of the Twentieth Massachusetts.

This online edition of The Photographic History of the Civil War includes improved images using digital images from the Library of Congress, when available. It also includes additional images that are either cropped from the Library of Congress digital images or are related to the specific topic being discussed in the article or page.

Volume 7 of the History is the first volume I'm publishing online simply because it was the one I was interested in when I decided to publish.

More to come, I hope.
