ANALYSIS/OPINION:

After reading Joseph Goulden’s book review of “A World on Fire: Britain’s Crucial Role in the American Civil War” (“When Britain sided with the South,” Tuesday), I wonder whether author Amanda Foreman called CSS Alabama a “privateer.”

The ship didn’t operate under letters of marque as a privateer. CSS Alabama was a commissioned warship in the Confederate States Navy.
