Harvest Moon sinks

With the occupation of Georgetown accomplished, Dahlgren reported heading for Charleston on March 1, 1865. As the Harvest Moon began its way down the harbor, however, it struck a torpedo and sank. (At low tide, the remains of this vessel can still be seen.)

(Adapted from the nomination form proposing that Battery White be added to the National Register of Historic Places. See the complete form (pdf) on our Documentation page.)
