Eutaw, a double-ended side wheel steamer, was launched in February 1863 by J. J. Abrahams, Baltimore, Md., and commissioned 2 July 1863, Lieutenant Commander H. C. Blake in command.

Eutaw joined the North Atlantic Blockading Squadron for operations in the Potomac and James rivers and along the Atlantic coast as far south as the southern border of North Carolina. On 4 and 5 May 1864, she sailed up the James River to cover, with two other ships, the landing of troops below City Point, VA., and between 14 and 17 July, shelled Malvern Hill, VA.

Eutaw towed the monitor Tecumseh to Pensacola Fla., between 5 and 28 July 1864, returning to picket duty in the James River 22 August. There she served until the close of the war. On 26 April 1865, she sailed for New York, where she was decommissioned 8 May 1865. Eutaw lay in ordinary until sold 15 October 1867.
