Blockade \Block*ade"\, n. [Cf. It. bloccata. See {Block}, v. t.
1. The shutting up of a place by troops or ships, with the
purpose of preventing ingress or egress, or the reception
of supplies; as, the blockade of the ports of an enemy.

Note: Blockade is now usually applied to an investment with
ships or vessels, while siege is used of an investment

power must be able to apply its force to every point of
practicable access, so as to render it dangerous to
attempt to enter; and there is no blockade of that port
where its force can not be brought to bear. --Kent.

2. An obstruction to passage.

{To raise a blockade}. See under {Raise}.

Blockade \Block*ade"\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Blockaded}; p. pr. &
vb. n. {Blockading}.]

troops or vessels or war for the purpose of preventing
ingress or egress, or the introduction of supplies. See
note under {Blockade}, n. ``Blockaded the place by sea.''
