E. Milby Burton
E. Milby Burton (1898–1977) was director of the Charleston Museum for forty years. His articles appeared in the Magazine Antiques and the New York Times, and his books include South Carolina Silversmiths and Charleston Furniture, 1700–1825.
"Burton's book will appeal to armchair tacticians interested in ironclads, torpedoes, submarines, and stories of 'courage and honor.' Historians familiar with the major events of the Civil War will welcome this comprehensive and generously documented book."—Journal of American History
"The author, the director of the Charleston Museum and a retired naval officer, has brought together, mainly from original sources, more information on the siege than is to be found elsewhere"—American Historical Review
