The CS Gunboat SPRAY (a side wheeled
3-gun steamboat), was captained by a Lt. McGary, CSN during portions of the Civil War. The SPRAY was a new ship with
a very modern steam engine and was in constant use transporting
troops and material to Lighthouse Point at St. Marks, Florida. The CSS Spray was the only CS Navy vessel to operate exclusively in Florida waters. Shown here is a full sized picture of The SPRAY.
The above is a pastel drawing by Frank D. Howard of the SPRAY.
