I was thinking there seemed to be quite a few warships lost on both sides during this one week stretch in 1864. I went back and started counting. There sure were a lot.
BOMBSHELL (previously captured in April) recaptured by Union.
CSS RALEIGH, ironclad ram, ran aground in Cape Fear River and destroyed
USS SASSACUS-- put out of action by CSS Albemarle.
USS COVINGTON- captured
USS SIGNAL-- captured and destroyed
USS COMMODORE JONES-- destroyed by torpedo
USS GRANITE CITY-- captured
USS WAVE-- captured
USS SHAWSHEEN-- captured and destroyed
