War-date carte de visite of Blockade Runner Captain John Carnighan as prisoner of war at Fort Warren, Boston Harbor, Massachusetts. ID’d on verso “Capt. Carnighan. Confined at Fort Warren, Boston Harbor, 1864.” Fine condition. John Carnighan was listed as a passenger aboard the highly successful blockade runner, Britannia, when she was overhauled 90 miles northeast of Eleuthera Island on the evening of June 25, 1863, after a day long chase by the USS Santiago de Cuba. She was attempting to run the blockade with a load of cotton out of Charleston, SC. Carnighan was most likely acting as the Britannia’s pilot since he is listed as a pilot for Charleston Harbor in an 1848 US Congressional report. He was also on board the blockade runner Revere when she was captured by the USS Monticello in October 1862. At that time the Revere’s manifest listed him as her second mate under a false name. Carnighan is listed in the Official Reports of the Civil War as eligible for exchange in March 1865.
