Clarksville in Southern VictoryEdit

In 1916, the USS Punishment dropped anchor in the Cumberland River, near Clarksville, for R&R. While George Enos, Stanley, Albert, and Grover rotated off the ship, a Confederate shell attack destroyed the Punishment, sinking it and killing the entire crew. The four sailors who went ashore were unscathed and the monitor's only survivors.
