Re: [Civil War] Virginia Volunteer Navy Company

This was a quasi-private, stock subscription "special operations" effort, chartered o/a 5 Aug 63. The Volunteers eventually bought steamer "Hawk" and got to Bermuda in 1864, but "ran into financial difficulties and never saw active service." See William A. Tidwell, "April '65: Confederate Covert Action in the American Civil War" Kent State Univ Press, 1995,ISBN o-87338-515-2) and check index entries.
