Augustus Holly

 

__________

 

(Sch)

 

Almost all records of Augustus Holly's brief naval service seem to have perished, but this schooner was purchased by the Navy at Baltimore on 13 August 1861 to be filled with stone and sunk to block one of the channels leading to Hatteras Inlet, N.C. Although she may have been used for this purpose, no report of her actual sinking has been found.
