History: She was ordered for Glasgow-Sligo service but sold clandestinely before completion in 1863 to Henry Lafone, Liverpool on behalf Confederate Government Treasury Dept. for the Confederate Navy. She was used as supply ship to CSS Shenandoah, when she carried armaments and crew for commissioning of Shenandoah at Islas Desertas, Madeira on 18–20 October 1864. Laurel ran the blockade, arriving Charleston on 1 December 1864. However, the CS Navy found her unsuitable, because her 11.6-knot actual top speed was too slow and 11 feet with only 500 bales was too deep draught for the Cape Fear entrances.[2] Thus she was purchased by the Treasury Department and renamed Confederate States, carrying a cotton cargo via Nassau to Liverpool, where she was laid up and sold in April 1865 to Goole Steam Shipping Co Ltd (John Moody & Richard Moxon), Goole.
