Another quote from the same source as the previous post. This is not something you expect to see in the log of a combat ship during wartime. It does show that the U. S. Civil War was not exactly the typical conflict.

Quote:
Abstract log of the U. S. S. Tyler, Lieutenant-Commander James M.
Prichett, commanding, January 1 to May 16, 1863.

January 242:55 p. m. came to anchor 100 yards above the flagship in the Yazoo River. 7 p. m. Mrs. Harris and Captain Sutherland came on board. 8:15 p. m. Captain Sutherland and Mrs. J. R. Harris were united in marriage by the Reverend Mr. Snow in presence of Acting Rear-Admiral D. D. Porter and commanding officers
of the fleet.
Captain Sutherland was a commander of one of the rams in the Mississippi Squadron.

I march to my own set of bagpipes. Caution: This individual thinks that studying logistics is FUN.

They that go down to the sea in ships,
that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD,
and his wonders in the deep.
