The USS Hollyhock was purchased in New Orleans 5 March 1863 to serve as a fleet tug and was in service as the USS Reliance. As of 1 June 1863, she was listed in Farragut's reports as the USS Hollyhock, presumably due to the fact there was another USS Reliance in commission at the same time.
Hollyhock was decommissioned at New Orleans and sold at public auction 5 October 1865.
