CSS Muscogee

CSS Jackson also known as CSS Muscogee was a Confederate States Navy ironclad ram, powered by a steam driven screw and deployed on the Chattahoochee River during the American Civil War.

She was built at Columbus, Georgia, and launched in December 1864. In April 1865, the still incomplete CSS Jackson (or CSS Muscogee, as she was also called) was burned and scuttled by Wilson's Raiders after the Battle of Columbus, Georgia on April 16. Her remains were recovered during the 1960s from the portion of the river inside the boundaries of Fort Benning and placed on exhibit at the National Civil War Naval Museum in Columbus.

Officially named CSS Jackson she was known as the Muscogee while being built at the Confederate Naval Yard in Columbus, Ga. The Jackson was a flat bottomed iron-clad ram designed to break the blockade and maintain control of the coastal waters and rivers of the upper Gulf coast area.
