Subject: happy? – Dec 12 (USS 'Cairo' sunk)
From: Abby Sale
Date: 12 Dec 05 - 09:05 AM

In the Yazoo River north of Vicksburg, Mississippi:

For the first time in history, a ship was sunk by an electrically detonated torpedo (ie, underwater mine),
the Union ironclad gunboat USS Cairo was sunk on 12/12/1862

        So Admiral Sims was chose,
        He came into the British Isles
        And viewed the "Sub" campaign,
        Just send my old torpedo boats
        Right back to me again.

                "Sims's Flotilla" From The Book of Navy Songs,
                USNA, DigTrad filename[ SIMSFLOT
