The Daily Dispatch: April 3, 1863., [Electronic resource], The burning of the Confederate steamer Natchez. (search)
e boat be came stationary. All on board had reached the stern, the whole boat was then enveloped in flames, about five minutes from the time the fire was first discovered. All or nearly all then rushed overboard as fast as they could. It was an awful moment. But nearly all were saved, either by aiming or clinging to the trees, though many ran a narrow chance. There was no dry land to be found, and these that could not get beyond the nearest trees suffered considerably from the wreck, many were considerably burned, but all were finally rescued, except three while persons--one of the engineers, one passenger named Adkins, I think, and a Mr. Wilson, together with four or five negroes. How she took fire none can tell. It was first discovered on the outer tier of bales, and it was then so small that but for the wind it could have been easily extinguished, but in ten minutes nothing was left but the hull. She was a noble boat, and might have done noble service. The loss is heavy.
