The Ship "Glad Tidings"

The end of the war signaled the end of the blockade of southern ports. In November 1865, the ship "Glad Tidings" entered the port of Liverpool in England with a shipment of Carolina cotton. Cotton, however, had not proved to be the "King" that would win for the South its independence from the Union.
