The Reduction of the North Atlantic Squadron, Jan. 1, 1865 to July 1, 1865

The Civil War Naval Chronology gave the official reports of this squadron six months apart in 1865, Jan. 1st and July 1st.  There had been a remarkable loss of ships between the two lists.

On January 1, 1865, the squadron had 156 ships.  By July 1st, that number was down to just 23.
