This chapter is about the efforts and the attacks that led to the final battle. For the proud Alabamians, there could be little consolation gained by the knowledge that their battery had done so well. The shock of the outcome would remain with them for some time. Thoughts about the glorious reputation won over the four years of conflict would no doubt help to diminish the painful recollection of how the South's quest for independence had ended.

Keywords: attacks; battle; Alabamians; battery; glorious reputation; independence
