Description

The torpedo as a weapon of practical utility first came prominently into notice during the American Civil War. They were in the form of casks and cases filled with gunpowder, and moored in such a position as to endanger any ship navigating in their vicinity, and they were fired by means of a chemical fuse or clockwork arrangement. In 1861 they were used with more or less
success by the Southern States.
