Wood relic 6-1/4"x1-1/4" with affixed paper label with manuscript "Taken from the rebel Steamer 'Albermarle' captured at Newbern, N.C. March 14, 1862." Fine condition. On the morning of March 26 1862, sidewheel gunboat Delaware -- during an expedition to the Pungo River in Pamlico Sound, North Carolina, in search of Confederate shipping reported to be there-entered Pantego Creek and found two large schooners at its head . . . "which," he reported, "proved to be the Albemarle and Lion owned by Boyle and Richard Reddick, of Suffolk, Virginia." Two armed boats from the Union warship took possession of the Southern vessels, towed them down stream, and anchored them at the mouth of the creek. Early the next morning, Delaware received on board several families who professed loyalty to the Union and asked for protection. Later that day, the gunboat and its prizes then proceeded to New Bern, North Carolina.
