Men Of Canada & England-U. S. Civil War.

I have done a lot of pages on the Civil War and men of the United States that were involved in the war but I have not done many from other countries that were involved in the war. The Rebel’s navy had a lot of secrete operations in Canada and England they would buy new or old ships from Canada and England and other countries then refit their ships take on supplies and try to run the blockades on the boarders between the United States and Canada and England too supply the Rebel army. It was hard to keep track on what was going with the ships as they work on these ships mostly in secrete and the Canada and England Government had a blind eye on the goings on at the docks. That’s not to say they showed no interest on what was going on, at the docks, but mostly only after the councils of the United States that were station there reminded the Canada and England Governments of are friendly relations with them and if they would like to keep that friendly relationship.

The Canada and England men who work in and around the docks were in the know on what was going on, and would give testimony on what was going on at the docks. The men on these page were just hard working men and sailors who felt it was their duty to give testimony on the goings on. I will list their names and where they lived when I can. As their statement are too long to put here I will give the page number of their statement in that way if you see a ancestor you can give his name and page number and I will send the statement to you. You can find my address in my profile.

Those of you who want to know what these statements have in them. Will it can be about him being a prisoner, or he may have work on one of the rebels ships as a crew man, or it could be about a wife telling what was happening to her will her husband was away, these statements can be about any events in their lives as a sailor, or citizen or wife? As for ( FEES) there are none I so not charge for my research it’s all ( FREE.)

Your Host.
