After lying for two years partly burned and sunk at Toledo, the ancient steamer PERIWINKLE is to be raised and rebuilt. She came out as a revenue cutter in 1863, with the cutters; FESSENDEN; JOHN SHERMAN; ANDREW JOHNSON and JOHN A. DIX. All of these except the PERIWINKLE were sidewheelers; she had twin screws, the first on the lakes. Her government name was COMMODORE PERRY.
