94. War, but no hurricanes

Generals and admirals had much to worry about during the bloody four years of the Civil War. What they didn't have to deal with was a hurricane. One of the longest hurricane-free periods that the continental United States has experienced in the last 160 years began in November 1861 and ended October 1865, roughly bracketing War Between the States.
