USS Owasco was a Unadilla-class "90 day gunboat" that was commissioned 23 January 1862 and send to the Gulf soon afterwards and remained on station during the entire war.
Shortly before the Battle of Mobile Bay, since the Owasco was laid up in the Pensacola Navy Yard for repairs to her boilers and unable to participate, a number of her officers and enlisted volunteered to replace Tecumseh crew members who were too ill to remain aboard her. Only one of them would survive the Tecumseh's sinking via a "torpedo" that Farragut famously dammed shortly afterwards and later imprisonment in Andersonville.
