They were a monument of the energy and determination of the enemy, which seemed to be without limit. After partially destroying the works at Fort DeRussy, the squadron proceeded up to Alexandria which place submitted without a dissenting voice, many of the inhabitants professing themselves Unionists. The day after the arrival of the gun-boats Major-General Banks marched into Alexandria and the town was turned over to him by the Navy. The following day the squadron returned down the Red River with the exception of the Lafayette, Estella and Arizona, and the ram Switzerland which were left to co-operate with General Banks in case he should require the assistance of the Navy.

The courage and determination of its garrison inspired those who were inclined to waver in their allegiance to the Confederacy, and, while Charleston held out the cause could not be considered altogether desperate. The heroic example set by the besieged was telegraphed daily all over the South, and the name Charleston was a watchword everywhere. Even the most radical and uncompromising Unionists could not help admiring the courage and devotion shown by the defenders of Charleston, and the city escaped any injury from the Union forces, except such as naturally follows the occupation by troops of a place lately in hostility, where vacant houses are taken possession of and their contents not too scrupulously respected. There was considerable disappointment expressed in the South because Charleston was so suddenly abandoned on the approach of General Sherman's army; but the Confede
