U.S. Revenue Steamer Naugatuck

Also called U.S. Revenue Steamer E. A. Stevens

and the Stevens Battery



The Naval Historical Center has several images including the Naugatuck, including these (and others):


In April, the ship was apparently under the command of a Captain Shippen. By May 8 (the action against Sewell's Batteries) and through at least May 15 (the action at Drewry's Bluff), US Revenue Service Lt. David C. Constable was in command.

Unfortunately, I have not yet collected the names of the other crew. Any help would be appreciated.
