LSNS Governor Moore was a schooner-rigged steamer in the Confederate States Navy. Governor Moore had been Southern S. S. Company’s Charles Morgan, named for the firm’s founder and built at New York in 1854 as a schooner-rigged, low pressure, walking beam-engined, seagoing steamer. She was seized at New Orleans, Louisiana by Brigadier General Mansfield Lovell, CSA, in mid-January 1862 “for the public service.” As a gunboat, renamed for Louisiana’s Governor Thomas Overton Moore, her stem was reinforced for ramming by two strips of flat railroad iron at the waterline, strapped and bolted in place, with pine lumber and cotton-bale barricades to protect her boilers, but the Governor Moore was never commissioned as a ship in the Confederate States Navy.
