Been reading a little about the Southern Commercial raiders during the American Civil War. I have found a reference that the CSA raider Georgia fought a ship to shore battle with the Moors off Morocco. Sadly I can't find any more information on this, anyone know anything about it???

Doesn't really seem to have been a battle at all. More just a few sailors getting hazed by locals during some shore-leave, a captain thundering cannon to illustrate his poor humor, and some inauspicious winds at the end of the episode.

(Under the heading of, "The Confederacy's Only Foreign War".)
