USS Kearsarge, a Mohican-class sloop-of-war, was commissioned by the United States Navy in 1861. She is best known for her defeat of the Confederate commerce raider CSS Alabama in 1864, during the American Civil War. The Kearsarge remained in service until being wrecked on a Colombian reef in 1894. Subsequent ships were later named Kearsarge in honor of the ship.

USS Kearsarge in The Guns of the SouthEdit

The USS Kearsarge was laying in wait just out of Cherbourg Harbor, where the CSS Alabama was in port. News of the Second American Revolution's end arrived just in time to avert the battle between these two vessels.[1]
