Title varies: Official records of the Union and Confederate Navies, 1861-1865.

"... Much difficulty, was found in collecting the records, for while the official reports of commanders of fleets and of vessels acting singly were on file in the Navy Department, it was found that the correspondence between flag officers and their subordinates was frequently missing. Without this squadron correspondence the historical value of the work would necessarily be incomplete, and the Department, therefore, spared no pains to secure the letter books and papers of the chief actors on both sides. These papers have, for the most part, been obtained, and they have been copiously used in the compilation of the work. The reports of the Union commanders are full and fairly complete. It is to be regretted, however, that the Confederate records are not equally complete, due to the great difficulty found in collecting them, and also to the fact that a large part of the archives of the Confederate Navy Department was burned at the close of the war. Frequent careful searches throughout various parts of the country, conducted by a special agent of the Department, have brought to light many duplicates of these papers, found among the personal files of participants"--Introd.
