"January 30, Wednesday: At Mobile Bay the U.S. Revenue Cutter Lewis Cass was surrendered to Alabama officers. Abraham Lincoln left Springfield to visit his stepmother, Sarah Bush Lincoln, in Coles County, Illinois." -- E.B. and Barbara Long, The Civil War, Day by Day, p. 30.
According to the New York Times:
"NEW-ORLEANS, Tuesday, Jan. 29.
The United States revenue cutter Lewis Cass to-day received orders to proceed to New-York, but Capt. BRESHWOOD refuses to take her out of the river."
"MOBILE, Saturday, Feb. 2.
The United States Revenue cutter Lewis Cass has been surrendered to the State of Alabama."
According to the online Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships:
"CSS Lewis Cass, originally the United States Revenue Cutter Lewis Cass, was seized by the Alabama authorities on 31 January 1861 and later turned over to the Confederate States Navy. Capt. J. J. Morrison, commanding the cutter Lewis Cass at Mobile, decided, like General Lee, to cast his lot with the Confederacy, and accordingly turned over his ship to Alabama, 30 January 1861. The crew remained loyal to the United States and made its way through the hostile South to reach Northern territory."
