George Buckhart

 

(Sch: a. 1 6-pdr.)

 

George Buckhart was armed by the Confederates for duty in conjunction with the Texas Marine Department [See Annex III] along the Texas Coast, particularly in the Matagorda Bay area. She was described as a good vessel, but riding extremely low in the water so that she could be boarded easily. On 17 March 1865, a schooner, George Burkhart, probably the same ship, was captured by USS Quaker City off Brazos Santiago while running the blockade.
