CSS Allison was employed as a transport in the James River area. While operating with the James River Squadron under Flag Officer J. Mitchell, CSN, she took an active part in the attempted passage through the obstructions at Trent's Reach on 23-24 January 1865. On 26 January 1865 she collided with the steam torpedo-boat Hornet, causing that ship to sink.
