James Anderson, Seaman, USN, Civil War

Pension Records show service on board USS Minnesota and USS Mackinaw

The USS Mackinaw was a 974 ton sidewheel steamer of the United States Navy during the American Civil War.

The ship was built in New York in 1863 and was launched on 22 April 1863.

Commissioned at New York on 23 April 1864 with Commander J. C. Beaumont in command, Mackinaw first served in the North Atlantic Blockading Squadron on the James River, starting picket duty in May and remaining on the river for most of 1864. She destroyed the steamer Georgiana McCaw 5 June and supported Union troops on their advance from Dutch Gap, Va., 11 August. Mackinaw also served in the Wilmington blockade and participated in other attacks throughout 1865.

After being ordered to Portsmouth, New Hampshire, in April 1865, Mackinaw was decommissioned on 11 May 1865. She was recommissioned in January 1866 to serve in the North Atlantic Squadron and in the West Indies.

Mackinaw was decommissioned for its final time in May 1867 and sold at public auction in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in October 1867.
