The ceremony, attended by Mason's nephew Christopher, as well as the British ambassador Christopher Hulse, was followed by an exhibition in the village of Corseaux celebrating his work.It is a very emotional moment for us.""It is like a dream," said his sister Portland at the cemetery in the village of Corsier-sur-Vevey, close to the home in Corseaux where their father lived for the last 22 years of his life.

The British, who had not taken sides in the war, were outraged and claimed the seizure of a neutral ship by the U. On November 8, 1861, Confederate diplomatic envoys James Mason (1798-1871) of Virginia and John Slidell (1793-1871) of Louisiana were aboard the Trent, a British mail steamer, sailing through the Bahama Channel (between the Bahamas and Cuba), when the vessel was intercepted by the USS San Jacinto, captained by Charles Wilkes (1798-1877). The crisis erupted after the captain of the USS San Jacinto ordered the arrest of two Confederate envoys sailing to Europe aboard a British mail ship, the Trent, in order to seek support for the South in the Civil War. In the end, President Abraham Lincoln’s administration released the envoys and averted an armed conflict with Britain.
