As Acting President of the French Association CSS Alabama, I organized this summer's dives to the wreck of the notorious Confederate raider sunk by the USS Kearsarge off Cherbourg, France, in 1864 in the last great sailing ship gunnery duel in history. The wreck lies 60 meters down at the bottom of the English Channel in today's French territorial waters. Cherbourg is now officially designated as the only Civil War battle site outside the U.S.

In a cooperative effort involving American and French divers and archeologists and the French Navy, we successfully raised the Alabama's five-ton aft pivot gun.

Scientific study of the Alabama's ordnance will help in reconstructing the commerce raider's history and evaluating the unique success of Captain Raphael Semmes, who kept the CSS Alabama at sea for almost two years and captured or destroyed more than 60 American vessels or vessels carrying American cargos.
