Ladies and Gentlemen,
RUN THE BLOCKADE!!!
In 1861/1862 Confederate forces blockaded the Potomac River with the use of land based cannon and artillery pieces. One of the main gun batteries was located in the town of Evansport (present day Quantico). Union vessels travelling up and down the Potomac River were forced to run the blockade.
