Frolic

 

(SwStr: t. 296)

 

Frolic was built in 1860 at Wheeling, W. Va. She served the Confederacy in the Red River above Fort de Russy in May 1863. She was still in the Red River, below Alexandria, La., in June 1864, having come out of the mouth into the Mississippi under a flag-of-truce to deliver Union casualties suffered during engagements with Confederate batteries on the banks of the Red River.
