Harvest bark


(Bark: t. 314; dr. 15)

Harvrest was an old whaler purchased by the Navy at New Bedford, Mass., 21 October 1861 for service in the Stone Fleet, a group of ships sunk in the channels of inlets to several Southern harbors to simplify the Union Navy's task of blockading the Confederacy. Harvest, with W. W. Taylor as master, sailed from New Bedford 20 November 1861 and arrived off Savannah, Ga. 4 December. However, the last mention of her in official records states that she was not sunk with the other ships which were scuttled to blockade Savannah but was retained for service as a coal scow.
