History offers few examples other than the Civil War and Vietnam of extensive operations on inland shallow waters involving specialized classes of war vessels commanded and manned by naval personnel conducting joint operations with land forces. The struggle for the Mississippi River was one of the longest, most challenging and diverse campaign of the Civil War. Strategically, this was an extension of the maritime blockade, an outgrowth of the Anaconda Plan. However, in technology, tactics, and command structure, riverine warfare was a fundamentally new concept empowered by the industrial revolution in steam propulsion, armor, and armaments. This presentation reviews the unprecedented conflict along the watery spine of America. (Presented at the North American Society for Oceanic History Annual Conference, May 2018.)
