Wave, originally Argosy No. 2, was built in 1863 at Monongahela, Pa., acquired by the Navy on 14 November 1863, and converted to a gunboat for service in western waters. The Confederates captured Wave and USS Granite City on 6 May 1864 at Calcasieu Pass, Tex. Thereafter she was in Confederate employ as a transport.
