Stafford's Confederate Year

USS Pawnee

While the Confederate forces were reinforcing Aquia Landing in Stafford, the U.S. Navy, in April of 1861, had sortied the USS Pawnee to control the Potomac opposite Alexandria.  The Pawnee, under Commander S.C. Rowan, was a 15 gun ship.  Added to the Pawnee were the steamers USS Anacostia and USS Pocahontas.
