Prince of Wales

(SwStr: t. 572)

Prince of Wales, built in 1860 at Cincinnati, Ohio, and pronounced one of the finest river steamers in the West, served as a transport with Comdr. I. N. Brown's flotilla. She was burned at Yazoo City in mid-July 1863 to escape capture by the advancing Union forces under Admiral Porter.
