CSS Nashville, an ironclad side-wheel steamer, was built at Montgomery, Alabama. Launched in mid-1863, she was taken to Mobile, Alabama, for fitting out, including the addition of armor plate taken from the dismantled ironclad CSS Baltic. However, this work had not been completed at the end of the Civil War, and Nashville was surrendered to Federal forces on 10 May 1865. She was taken into the U.S. Navy after the War, but remained incomplete and was sold at New Orleans in November 1867.
