USS Vermont (1862-1902)

USS Vermont, a 2633-ton storeship, was built as a ship of the line by the Boston Navy Yard. Though laid down in 1818 and launched in 1848, she was not commissioned until January 1862. During 1862-64, Vermont was stationed at Port Royal, South Carolina, where she supported the Civil War operations of the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron. Her next assignment was as receiving ship at the New York Navy Yard, where she remained in service until struck from the Navy List in December 1901. Vermont was sold the following April.
