Little curious about this:

"The Harriet Lane was part of a fleet President Abraham Lincoln had ordered to bring supplies to Fort Sumter. The ships were turned back by Confederate artillery fire from land and the Harriet Lane returned to the harbor entrance late on April 11 and into April 12."

Might the writer have conflated the April expedition with the Star of the West?
