The Steamship SS Admiral DuPont-- Part 1: Previously the Anglia

Yesterday i mentioned that the SS Satacona had run aground in Nantucket two days after it had had a collision with the SS Admiral DuPont off Cape May on June 8, 1865.There were U.S. troops on it and the Admiral DuPont so these fortunate ones had twice the chance of being ion a shipwreck.  What a way to go home.

I decided to delve deeper into the story as it appeared to be of interest.

From the Department of Navy Civilian Ships site.

The Admiral DuPont steamship 1847-1865.  Properly called the Admiral Du Pont and was previously named the Anglia.
