150 Years Ago: CSS Shenandoah Passes the Equator in the Atlantic

OCTOBER 11TH, 1865:  The CSS Shenandoah crossed the equator about midway between South America and Africa as she steered for England.  Capetown, South Africa, had requested the ship stop there, but Waddell had determined that he had to go directly to England to surrender his command.
