Wreck of the USS Anna (Annie) Found

FEBRUARY 5TH, 1865:  The USS Hendrick Hudson reported locating the sunken wreck of the USS Anna (Annie), south of Cape Romain, Florida.

The Anna had departed Key West on 30 December and had not been heard from since. Apparently, an accidental explosion had ripped the schooner apart.  No survivors were found.
