Looking for the CSS Shenandoah

AUGUST 4, 1865:  Rear Admiral George F. Pearson of the Pacific squadron reported to Secretary Welles that the ind=formation gained from the whaler Milo on depredations of the CSS Shenandoah had been brought to him in San Francisco.  He also reported that he immediately dissolved a general court martial being conducted by squadron officers and sent every available ship to sea to search for the last of the Confederate raiders.
