Civil War Quiz in Fayetteville Last Month-- Part 3: What Was the Home Port of the Confederate Raider Chickamauga?

Some other questions the contestants had to answer:

Who was the Devil's Errand Boy?

What was the home port of the Confederate commerce raider Chickamauga?

We all now that the firing on Fort Sumter started the war, but what installation did the first shot come from?

What battle featured  an area known as "The Mule Shoe?"

Answers, in order:  Union Gen. Lafayette Baker, Wilmington, N.C., Fort Johnson, Battle of Spottsylvania.

I missed the first question, but knew the next three.

Fifteen contestants started and within the first three rounds, five had been eliminated.

Division winners got a $50 gift card from Barnes & Noble.
