Station: On Board Uss Ship Minnesota New London Corn

USS Minnesota was a wooden steam frigate in the United States Navy. Launched in 1855 and commissioned eighteen months later, the ship served in east Asia for two years before being decommissioned. She was recommissioned at the outbreak of the American Civil War and returned to service as the flagship of the North Atlantic Blockading Squadron.

During the first day of the Battle of Hampton Roads on March 8, 1862, Minnesota ran aground, and the following battle badly damaged her and inflicted many casualties. On the second day of the battle, USS Monitor engaged CSS Virginia, allowing tugs to free Minnesota on the morning of 10 March. Minnesota was repaired and returned to duty, and three years later she participated in the Second Battle of Fort Fisher. Minnesota served until 1898, when she was stricken, beached and burnt to recover her metal fittings and to clear her name for a newly-ordered battleship, USS Minnesota (BB-22).

Station: Uss Franklin

The fourth USS Franklin of the United States Navy was a screw frigate.

The ship was laid down at the Portsmouth Navy Yard in 1854, and built in part of materials salvaged from the previous Franklin. For a time housed over, she was launched on 17 September 1864, commissioned on 3 June 1867 at Boston, and on 28 June sailed from New York as flagship of Admiral David Farragut who assumed command of the European Squadron. Relieved by Ticonderoga she arrived back in New York on 10 November 1868.

Her second European cruise, beginning on 28 January 1869, was as flagship for Rear Admiral William Radford. She served with the European Squadron until 30 September 1871 when she sailed for the United States. On 13 November 1871 she was decommissioned at Boston.

Recommissioned on 15 December 1873, she sailed on the North Atlantic Station. On 11 April 1874 she stood out to sea to join the European Squadron as flagship until 14 September 1876. On 9 January 1876, while Franklin was at Lisbon, Portugal, Ordinary Seaman Edward Maddin and Seaman John Handran jumped overboard and rescued a shipmate from drowning, for which they were later awarded the Medal of Honor.[1]

Franklin was placed out of commission at Norfolk, Virginia on 2 March 1877 and recommissioned the same day as receiving ship for the Naval Station Norfolk, continuing in this service until 14 October 1915 which marked her final decommissioning. She was stricken from the Naval Vessel Register on 26 October 1915 and sold.
