Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. USS Banshee (1862) was a large steamship “blockade runner” that was captured by the Union Navy and converted to Navy use during the American Civil War. Banshee, a 533-ton (burden) side-wheel steamship, was built in Liverpool, England, in 1862 for employment running the Federal blockade of the Confederate coast. Her transatlantic maiden voyage, in April 1863, was a "first" for a steel-hulled ship, though her innovative construction proved troublesome in service. During the next seven months, Banshee was very successful in her intended trade, making seven round-trip voyages between Bermuda or the Bahamas and Wilmington, North Carolina. She was captured by USS Grand Gulf (1863) and the U.S. Army Transport Fulton on 21 November 1863, while en route to Wilmington.
