CSS Muscogee, an ironclad ram screw steamer, was built
at Columbus, Georgia, beginning in late 1862. She was launched
in December 1864, but was not completed. In April 1865, Muscogee
(or Jackson, as she was also called) was burned on the
Chattahoochee River by Union Army forces. Her remains were recovered
during the 1960s and placed on exhibit at Columbus.
This page features our only views of the Confederate ironclad
ram Muscogee, which was also known as CSS Jackson.
