Fulton

 

(SwStr: t. 698; l. 180'; b. 34'8"; dr. 10'6"; s. 10 k.; cpl. 130; a. 4 32-pdr.)

 

Fulton was a sidewheeler built at Brooklyn Navy Yard in 1837 and rigged as a fore-topsail schooner.

 

Fulton, formerly of the United States Navy, was captured by the Confederates when they seized the Pensacola Navy Yard on 12 January 1861. She was selected for Confederate Navy service but never finished refitting. The Confederates destroyed her while evacuating the yard before Union reoccupation on 10 May 1862.
