Robert Underwood Johnson, Clarence Clough Buell, Battles and Leaders of the Civil War. Volume 4., Minor operations of the South Atlantic squadron under Du Pont. (search)
Drayton's bombardment, all attempts on Fort McAllister were abandoned, and the efforts of the squadron were directed wholly to the attack on Charleston. The only event of importance during the remainder of Du Pont's command was the capture of the Confederate iron-clad Atlanta. This vessel, formerly known as the Fingal, an English blockade-runner, had been converted at Savannah into an armored ram of the Merrimac type, armed with six heavy Brooke rifles and a spar-torpedo, and placed under the command of Commander William A. Webb. She was met on the 17th of June, in Wassaw Sound, by the monitors Weehawken, Captain John Rodgers, and Nahant, Commander John Downes. The Weehawken engaged her, firing five shots, of which four struck the Atlanta. The injury inflicted by these was enough to show that a protracted action would end in the demolition of the Confederate vessel, and she accordingly surrendered. She was towed to Port Royal, where the damages received were readily repaired.
