ABSTRACT
The article reports that during the uncertain early months of the Civil War, the USS Pawnee seemed the embodiment of the U.S. naval might on the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay. Within hours of Virginia's secession on April 17, the 233-foot steam sloop was dispatched from the Washington Navy Yard to secure, if possible, the Gosport Naval Shipyard in Portsmouth, Virginia and to establish a blockade Hampton Roads.
