The Chickasaw was a ironclad Milwaukee-class river monitor built for the Navy and was commissioned on 14 May 1864.
Chickasaw was assigned to the West Gulf Blockading Squadron on 9 July 1864. She was a participant in the Battle of Mobile Bay as that "damned black hulk" that took out the rebel admiral Buchanan and brought the feared ram Tennessee to heel.
She served in and around Mobile Bay until 3 July 1865 when she left for New Orleans to be decommissioned.
