Good Idea Blood Rave! And, actually, this attack seems ideally suited for the Raid Format!!

I actually wrote a brief article about this for a freelance writing class. Would you include the actions of the Albemarle, too? I suppose they could count as raids. Cushing wasn't the only survivor--several of his men were captured.

Sounds like a good idea. There is a History Channel documentary about this raid that can be found in a Civil War DVD set.

Sounds like a perfect fit for the Raid series, and we know Osprey loves the ACW...
