Abstract:
In 1862, Union ships attacked the MODERN GREECE, a blockade runner, and forced it to ground one thousand yards off Kure Beach. The crew fought their way to safety through the surf. Cannon fire from Fort Fisher kept the Union Navy from salvaging the ship; later, fire from Fort Fisher destroyed the MODERN GREECE to keep it from falling into enemy hands. A winter storm in 1964 revealed the old hulk lying in twenty-five feet of water. Salvage operation brought results as divers brought up rifles, bullets, sabers, shells, and even a cannon.

The bomb was designed by General Benjamin F. ‘Beast’ Butler (1818-1893). Though the bomb failed, a second attack on the fort using a land assault and a naval bombardment brought the surrender of Fort Fisher.

This article discusses the idea and methodology for creating a ship bomb.
