Admiral Cockburn On The Sassafras


"It was on the 6th of May, a warm and beautiful morning, that Cockburn, with hundred men, in eighteen barges, went up the Sassafras."


"So delighted was Cockburn with success in plundering and destroying unprotected towns that with characteristic swagger he declared he should not be satisfied until he had burned every building Baltimore."
