Collection Description

Biographical Note

In 1861, the Confederate Navy assembled three tugs and a passenger boat as a squadron at Savannah, Georgia; in 1862 five gunboats and another passenger boat were added. In 1863 the command at Savannah was divided into a naval station and a squadron which was under the command of Richard L. Page. In 1864, the squadron was comprised of the vessels Savannah, Georgia, Isondiga, Sampson, Resolute, Firefly, and the captured Water Witch and Macon. In December 1864, some of the vessels were burned, sunk, or captured when Savannah was taken by Union forces.
