“The role of the United States Navy was the decisive factor in securing Union victory and nowhere was that more evident than on the inland waters where the ironclads, tinclads, and cotton clads of the 'Brown Water Navy' battled for control of the Mississippi River and its major tributaries”…Gary D. Joiner Author Mr. Lincoln's Brown Water Navy
“The unique and inestimable value of the Negro to the Union navy, as to its army, was his acquaintance with the [Confederate] enemy and his terrain. The greatest single source of military and naval intelligence, particularly on a tactical level, for the Federal government during the Civil war was the Negro. Knowing the crucial importance of information concerning the enemy for any successful military effort, these hundreds and thousands of willing and eager scouts, spies, guiders, pilots, and informer, available only to the Union forces, constituted a major source of superiority for the Union forces as opposed to their enemy. Frequently Negroes, both enlisted and civilian, provided units of the Federal fleet with information (and at times personally guided those units) making possible the destruction or capture of valuable stores of sugar, rice, cotton, corn and salt”……Herbert Aptheker [ ] = inserts
