James Woods, also known as James Wood, was built at Jeffersonville, Ind., in 1860 and operated out of Nashville, Tenn. Offered by her owner for sale to the Confederacy, she was purchased by Lt. I. N. Brown, CSN, for use as a gunboat. The approach of Union forces interrupted her conversion and caused the Confederates to destroy her at Nashville in February 1862.
