Just like the tide, history flows through every corner of Old Dominion's Hampton Roads region, and for decades it has been chronicled in the Virginian-Pilot's column, "Our Stories." These stories are now told by local historian and longtime columnist Paul Clancy, who offers up this unparalleled and uninhibited collection of articles and stunning historical images. Rediscover the history behind landmarks such as Fort Monroe, Sewell's Point and Cape Henry and take in the view from the vantage point of those who witnessed history being made before their eyes: stories about the hurricane of '33, the old fairgrounds on the bay, the trolleys that ran to Ocean View, the semipro baseball teams that battled for glory, the harrowing and courageous struggle for racial equality and the soldiers and sailors who went off to war. This is the real stuff of Hampton Roads history.

In the river-born community of Ophelia, Virginia, on the Chesapeake Bay, there are three religions: The Water, The Family, and The Land. This trinity has bound and sustained a community of proud, independent people for generations. But in the face of dwindling fisheries, falling prices for the catch, and land speculation by outsiders, a way of life is dying. Jines Arley Evans, a third generation waterman, clings to what is left of his past. His wife and young son are long dead, his estranged daughter far away. The family land and its silent house, the workboat called Jenny Rae after his wife, and the rhythms, mysteries, and seasons of the water are all that remain of a life that long ago lost any real purpose. His daughter, Lily Rae Evans, fled her father, the family home, and Ophelia fourteen years ago. Bitterly angry at Jines for his emotional abandonment, Lily Rae lives in Portland, Maine, where she works as a journalist. Like her father, disaffection and silence are her allies; the past remains a vault in which any kind of future is locked. When Jines suffers a stroke while fishing, the trajectories of their isolation from each other and from the rest of the world abruptly change. As Jines¿s only surviving family member, Lily Rae is called home. Thrown together, they must come to terms with their isolation from each other and the rest of the world. They begin to find a common language in an unlikely place¿in a shed where Jines, now land-bound and needing Lily¿s help, begins to build a traditional deadrise skiff. As Jines¿s powerful life slowly recedes and contracts, Lily¿s expands as she becomes reacquainted with the place and people she had left behind, including Jamie Cockrell, her best childhood friend. Now a divorced father of a beautiful young daughter, he¿s yearning for what few other young men of Ophelia still want¿a chance to run his own boat and work on the water. Lily is falling in love, not only with Jamie and his daughter but with her home.

On April 12, 1861, the Civil War began when shots were fired on an unfinished fort in Charleston Harbor. From that thunderous opening salvo, the naval battles to control the Atlantic coast that followed–daring, savage, and often deadly–were not only crucial in determining the outcome of the war and the fate of a nation, but would change the face of naval warfare forever. GUNSMOKE OVER THE ATLANTIC Historian Jack D Coombe, author of the critically acclaimed Thunder Along the Mississippi and Gunfire Around the Gulf, combines brilliant research with a novelist’s flair for re-creation to put us directly into the action of the Civil War on river, on shore, and at sea. In this vivid account, we experience the soul-gnawing terror of a bombardment, the claustrophobic confines of a still-unproven submarine, and the smoke-choked chaos of a harbor in the grips of a full-bore naval engagement between two desperate enemies. Coombe focuses on the Civil War as it was fought along the Atlantic coast, a fierce contest of blockaders and blockade-runners, ironclads, wood-hulled battleships, land cannon, submarines, and the first underwater antiship weapons. For the North, the challenge was to implement a blockade over 3,500 miles of Confederate coastline, from Virginia to Texas. To do so, they would have to modernize an ineffective and outdated U.S. Navy fallen into incompetence and disrepair. For the South, the challenge was to create a fledgling navy from whatever meager resources were at hand. The Confederacy patched together a navy of river runners and converted battleships, turned cornfields into shipyards, and put the first ironclad battleship into action. And it was the South that introduced the new concept of underwater weaponry, sending spar torpedoes, mines, submarines–and a few incredibly brave men willing to deploy them–into battle against the North. Gunsmoke over the Atlantic chronicles the key engagements, from the Monitor and the Virginia dueling at Hampton Roads to the ill-fated campaign against Fort Fisher. Along the way, we meet a remarkable cast of naval strategists and warriors on both sides of the battle, witness the crucial, often deadly role played by the weather and the sea itself, and get a vivid view of such important events as the first amphibious landing in history, at Cape Hatteras in 1861. An important work for students of the Civil War and of naval history, this book fills in missing pieces of America’s most tragic war and shows why, when the guns finally fell silent, a new era had begun. Four years after the fall of Fort Sumter, a once divided country had the beginnings of the most powerful navy in the world. From the Hardcover edition.
