Capitol was built in Jeffersonville, Ind., in 1855. Seized by the Confederates, she burned on 28 June 1862, at Liverpool, Miss., and in July 1862 was sunk as an obstruction in the Yazoo River. The engines and machinery removed from Capitol were kept at Yazoo City until early 1863 when they were sent to Selma, Ala., for use in the further defense of Mobile Bay and the Alabama River.
