Torpedoes designed by Confederates on the Potomac found by Steamer Resolute. The first USS Resolute (1860) was a steamer acquired by the Union Navy during the American Civil War. She was purchased by the Union Navy to be part of the fleet of ships stationed in coastal waterways to prevent blockade runners from entering or departing ports of the Confederacy. She served as a gunboat and, at times, as a ship's tender and, at war's end, was sold at auction. July 7, 1861
