Ida

 

(SwStr)

 

Ida, a small steamer, operated in conjunction with Commodore Tattnall's squadron in the Savannah River. She served as a transport, dispatch, and tow boat from 1862 until 10 December 1864, when, during the Union attack on Savannah, she was captured by a party of foragers and cavalrymen under Captain Gildersleeve, USA, and burned near Argyle Island.
