The Civil War and Newport, R.I.
Ahh, let's return to the original mission of this here blog: Civil War history. On my recent trip to Newport, R.I., I stumbled upon a neat factoid. Newport was the U.S. Naval Academy's headquarters during the war. I snapped a picture of the original site. The building behind the sign was not there during the war. It's an Elks Lodge.
