Blockade-Runners, the Cigarette Boats of Their Day: Agnes E. Fry

From the April 13, 2016, R&D "Archaeologists Aim to 3D Map Civil War Ship Wreckage" by Greg Watry.

Billy Ray Morris, North Carolina deputy state archaeologist:  "Blockade runners were the cigarette boats of their era, moving fast with an unarmed captain and crew using their talents to avoid Union ships and get their goods to land."

--Old B-Runner
