Husband No. 7: John Warner After a year and a half apart, Richard and Liz took a second shot at love. They tied the knot again—she wore flowers in her hair, again—in October of 1975, and were divorced again the following July.
May 5, 1864: With the Federal offensive to capture Shreveport, LA ending in disaster, some Confederate artillery units formed ship hunting teams, targeting the now vulnerable and unsupported Federal warships on the Red River. On this day, two tinclad gunboats, USS Covington (pictured) and USS Signal, were escorting the troop transport USS John Warner when they were ambushed at Dunn's Bayou. All three ships were destroyed and nearly 300 soldiers and sailors were killed, wounded, or captured.
