Confederate Torpedo Boat Squib Strikes the Minnesota-- Part 4

The Squib escaped under heavy musketry fire. Union tug Poppy did not have steam up and could not pursue the torpedo boat, which withdrew safely into the James River. Davidson, a pioneer in torpedo warfare, was promted to commander for his "gallant and meritorious conduct." //// --Old B-R'er
