The “Miami

From the time she ran the forts below New Orleans with Farragut, the “Miami” was ever on the go. During 1863-4, under the redoubtable Lieutenant-Commander C. W. Flusser, she was active in Carolina waters. In the Roanoke River, April 1, 1864, she met her most thrilling adventure when she and the “Southfield” were attacked by the powerful Confederate ram “Albemarle.” “The Southfield” was sunk, but the “Miami” in a plucky running fight made her escape down the river and gave the alarm.
