The Stag

The Stag was built in 1854 by William Denny & Bros of Dumbarton for the Glasgow firm G & J Burns and worked on the Scotland to Ireland passenger service. During the American Civil War (1861-1865) she was used as a blockade runner, carrying food and goods to ports in the southern states of the Confederacy, in defiance of the Union blockade.

After the war the Stag worked as a coal ship in Australia.
