CSS Water Witch Burned

DECEMBER 19TH, 1864:  The CSS Water Witch, captured from the Union on June 3, 1864 in a daring attack, was burned by the Confederates in the Vernon River near Savannah, in order to prevent her capture by Sherman's troops who were getting mighty close to the city by then.

The USS Princess Royal captured schooner Cora off Galveston with cargo of cotton.
