Blockade runners were absolutely necessary for the survival of the Confederacy. On the way out, they would deliver the South's cash crop, cotton, and use the money realized to buy essential products from Great Britain or Ireland, Tait's Limerick uniforms being just one of the manufactured goods. Some believe that the character of Rhett Butler, the cynical blockade runner, was based on a real life person, George Trenholm, the shipping magnate and one-time Treasurer of the Confederacy.
