The U.S.S. Tuscarora moors in Southampton Water, a mile from the Confederate commerce Nashville

The 1,200 ton raider Nashville, commanded by Lieutenant Robert B. Pegram, arrived in Southampton in November 1861 and entered dry-dock to repair storm damage. The powerful U.S.S. Tuscarora, under Commander T. Augustus Craven, arrived and moored less than a mile away.  The Nashville completed her repairs and sailed on February 3, 1861.  The Tuscarora could not follow, under international law, for 24 hours.
