150 Years Ago: Oct. 2, 1863

OCTOBER 2ND USS Bermuda captured blockade-running British schoonerFlorrie near Matagorda, Texas, with cargo including medicine, wine and saddles. (Inbound) //// There was nothing listed for Oct. 1st or Oct. 3-4 in the Civil War Naval Chronology and just this item for Oct. 2nd. //// Normally I wouldn't even have written about it, but needed something for the begiining of this month. //// But, I had never heard of this Matagorda, Texas, so will do more research on it. //// Old B-Runner
