Anna Dale

 

(Sch: t. 70; a. 1 12-pdr.)

 

The schooner, Anna Dale was operated by the Confederates off the Texas coast and may have engaged in privateering. She was commanded by Master J. E. Stevenson when surprised and captured in February 1865 off Pass Cavallo, Tex., by a boarding party from USS Pinola in charge of Acting Ensign J. Brown, USN. The captors set sail in her but running aground they set her afire on 18 February to prevent recapture.
