Many? Most? All? manned by Marines which was pretty much their role in the Civil War. The prestige of the Corps had diminished to that of Ships Guards. Note that at the start of the war the Army had a significant fleet outside of Naval command. No Marines on Army ships and boats. The Confederate Marines followed a similar role - that of artillery crew at sea and in shore batteries. They did have snazzy uniforms which weren't designed by Pres Davis!

Thanks guys.

Now for the est of the boat. A lot of deck junk on these, unlike ironclads. The masts, rigging, fittings... but I think I have it worked out. Hopefully, this should be an ok model when done!
