I started my maritime service as a Revenue Cutter, and was named after an (acting) presidential First Lady. I fired a single, but very significant shot across the bow of the Nashville in Charleston Harbor in April, 1861. I was captured by a Confederate boarding party during the Second Battle of Galveston. Name that ship.

AND

Why was the single shot over the bow of the Nashville significant... and what was the weight...
