 The USS Isaac P. Smith was ambushed by Confederate shore batteries and captured on the Stono River near Charleston on January 30, 1863. John Wyer Dicks (Executive Officer) and Frederic Calvin Hills (Paymaster) were officers on the Smith, meeting each other as shipmates, spending time as prisoners of war together, and immediately after the Civil War becoming related when Frederic married John’s daughter Marianne. The Ambush of the Isaac P. Smith, Family Ties and the Battle on the Stono, January 30, 1863 tells the history of the Smith leading up to its capture as well as provides an account of the crew’s captivity, the lives of Dicks and Hills after the war, and some brief biographies of other combatants, North and South. Battle reports and eyewitness accounts were used to describe the battle. This book is published through Lulu.com and is available there as well as Amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.
