Logan

 

(SwStr: t. 296)

 

Logan, an iron hulled steamer, was built in 1855 at Wilmington, Del. In 1861 she was chartered by the State of Virginia and served the Confederate army as a transport in the Virginia rivers.

 

Logan was burned at Barrett's Landing, 25 miles above White House, Va., on the Pamunkey River by Confederate forces evacuating the area at the approach of Currituck and Seth Low under Lt. A. Murray, USN.
