Beachcomber - The Alabama was a commerce raider built in England and commissioned by the Confederacy during the American Civil War/War Between the States/War of Northern Aggression. After a successful cruise against American-flagged ships, she met the USS Kersage within sight of the coast of France. IIRC, most of the crew escaped to France and avoided capture when she went down.
