Horizontal view of the C.S.S. Alabama at sea. Lithograph created to look like a framed portrait. Oval "frame" has gold highlights. Clear image with good contrast. Photographer's backmark: Brady's gallery, New York.

C.S.S. Alabama was a screw sloop-of-war built in 1862 for the Confederate States Navy at Birkenhead on the River Mersey opposite Liverpool, England by John Laird Sons and Company.

Initially known only by her shipyard number "290", she was launched as "Enrica" on 15 May 1862. In the Azores the new ship's captain, Raphael Semmes, began overseeing the refitting of the new vessel with provisions, armaments, and 350 tons of coal.

The "Alabama" served as a successful commerce raider, attacking Union merchant and naval ships over the course of her two-year career, during which she never docked at a Southern port. She was sunk in June 1864 by U.S.S. Kearsarge at the Battle of Cherbourg outside the port of Cherbourg, France.  [jet] [ph:L]
