Fisher

 

(StGbt: t. 66)

 

The small wooden gunboat captured while building at Edwards Ferry, N.C., has been presumed to have been CSS Fisher. "New and with good machinery," she reached Hampton Roads 27 June 1865. She may have been the sidewheeler Alexander Oldham documented for commerce 27 September 1865 in Philadelphia and lost in 1873.
