Battle of Tuliffiny-- Part 7: Union Ships
Union Naval vessels that participated in the amphibious landing at Tuliffiny
Note, I am of the belief these were ships of the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron probably based at the Union base at Hilton Head, S.C.. (Port Royal)
USS St, Louis (The only Civil War ship by this name I could find was one of the Mississippi River ironclads.)
USS New Hampshire (this was a former ship-of-the-line and storehouse based at Port Royal).
USS Sonoma This one was definitely at the battle.
USS James Adger
These ships were under command of Rear Admiral James Dahlgren (Dahlgren guns) of the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron.
The Naval Support Brigade ashore was commanded by Commander George Henry Preble.
