USSMichigan was the United States Navy’s first iron-hulled warship and served during the American Civil War.
Michigan was designed by naval constructor Samuel Hart; fabricated in parts at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, during the last half of 1842; and carried overland to Erie, Pennsylvania, where assembled.
After the war, Michigan continued her faithful service, and was the ship which intercepted and interned the army of the Fenian Brotherhood as it returned from its invasion of Canada near Buffalo, New York in 1866.
