Don was the iron, twin-screw, two-stacked running-mate of Hansa, both of which were operated and partly owned by the State of North Carolina. A Captain Cory commanded Don when, as a still-new $115,000 ship carrying a $200,000 cargo of Army uniforms, blankets and shoes in from Nassau, she fell prey to USS Pequot, 4 March 1864, on her third attempt that voyage to run into Wilmington NC.
