USS Alligator Copper

USS Alligator

U.S. Navy - USS Alligator - Copper The Navy's first submarine, the USS Alligator was lost at sea off Cape Hatteras, N.C. in 1863 at the height of the Civil War. Measuring 47-feet in length and designed to hold a crew of 20, the Alligator was the most technologically advanced vessel of its day, containing revolutionary devices still found on modern-day submarines. Based on the design of a French-born American engineer named Brutus De Villeroi, the innovative craft was constructed in secret at the Washington Navy Yard. On April 2, 1863, stormy seas forced the crew of the steamship USS Sumpter - which had been assigned to tow the Alligator to the site of its first major mission - to cut the boat adrift. A century and a half later, its whereabouts still remain a mystery. This copper coin is dedicated to the ongoing search for the famed USS Alligator and salutes all those who are leading the effort to raise her from the depths. The obverse features a caricature of an alligator in full Navy dress clutching the Navy trident and bears a rendering of the USS Alligator. The reverse contains an excerpt from a letter written by the boat's chief designer, Brutus De Villeroi, to President Abraham Lincoln, which begins: "I propose to you a new arm of war..." Each coin comes packaged with a c...

Florida's Shipwrecks (Images of America: Florida)

Florida's Shipwrecks (Images of America:

The Sunshine State has a rich maritime history spanning more than five centuries. Tragically, part of that history includes thousands of ships that have met their fates in Florida waters. Potentially more than 5,000 shipwrecks reside off Florida’s 1,200 miles of coastline, with hundreds more lost in the state’s interior rivers. In and of itself, the Florida Keys archipelago, consisting of approximately 1,700 islands stretching 200 miles, is littered with the remains of close to 1,000 shipwrecks. In fact, many features of the Florida Keys were named after various shipwreck events, such as Fowey Rocks, which earned its name after the 1748 wrecking of the British warship HMS Fowey, and Alligator Reef, where the schooner USS Alligator met her demise in 1822. Florida’s Shipwrecks utilizes captivating images to illustrate dramatic stories of danger and peril at sea, introducing readers to a fascinating cross-section of Florida’s shipwreck history.

Patches are one of the ways to select someone from a group, as well as a badge of distinction. It is believed that the patches came into our life from the army with hook on technology. And there they appeared since memorial times. It is even said that the first police patches could be considered the tattoo that the Roman soldiers did on their hands. With the help of them, they could distinguish their warriors from enemy soldiers in battle by the military patches.

Flagshp Models 1/72 Scale USS Alligator Union Submarine (7.5" Long)

Flagshp Models 1/72 Scale USS Alligator Union Submarine

The USS Alligator was created by inventor, Brutus De Villeroi. De Villeroi succeeded in convincing the Union Navy that he could produce a submarine warship from which a diver could place an explosive charge under an enemy ship. Six months later in November 1861, he was under contract to build the Union's first true submarine, Alligator. The 47 foot long Alligator was intended to counter the threat of the Confederate ironclad Virginia II. Although the Navy specified the submarine's construction take no longer than 40 days at a cost of $14,000.00, the project suffered long delays. Her fist mission: to destroy a strategically important bridge across the Appomattox River to clear away obstructions. "It was made of iron, with the upper hull pierced for small circular plates of glass for lighting, and in it were several water tight compartments." It had originally been fitted with sixteen paddles at the sides to be worked by 16 men inside. The unmanned Alligator left Washington on March 31, 1863 under tow. A fierce storm forced the men of the tow ship to cut the submarine adrift off Cape Hatteras. The Alligator was lost at sea and has yet to be found.
