Remains of the USS UNDERWRITER were found by individual divers in the Neuse River in June 1987. The ship sank on February 1, 1864 defending against Confederate recapture of New Bern, taken by Union forces in March 1862. Divers, in conjunction with the state, recovered a gun carriage; a significant artifact because it was the only one of its type actually used in a naval engagement in state waters.
