Confederate Captain Enters Friendly Territory

On this day in 1862, Commander Maury of the Confederate Navy entered friendly territory...in Canada. The captain took his ship from Bermuda to Halifax, Nova Scotia. When he brought his vessel to port, he discovered the Confederate flag being flown from a seaside hotel for an entire day in his and his crew's honor. He never knew he had such good allies.

The Canadians must have wished the North much ill. We had only invaded them twice before.
