The story of the War of the Rebellion includes many heroic episodes, but, for every tale we thrill to read, there are many more that have never been told or are all but lost. Among these are the exploits of John H. Stevenson, Paymaster in the U.S. Navy. His one-man expeditions along the shores of the Rappahannock, Mississippi, and James rivers brought intelligence to Union forces that saved lives and turned the tide of battle. Every instance involved narrow escapes and close calls for this unlikely hero, "The Daredevil of the Pay Corps!"
