This sloop of war was launched on March 20, 1862, at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, and served in the U.S. Navy during the Civil War. Assigned to the North Atlantic Blockading Squadron, the "Juniata" was first stationed at Norfolk, Va., where her guns protected the navy yard. Ordered to join the West Indies Squadron, she departed Hampton Roads on April 26, 1863, and captured the schooner "Harvest" loaded with Confederate cotton that was bound for Nassau. Joining the squadron on May 5th, she continued to play havoc on Confederate commerce capturing four ships including the schooner, "Fashion" which had a cargo of chemicals that were critical to the Confederacy. She continued to cruise in the West Indies convoying California bound ships to safe water and alertly watching for signs of Rebel cruisers and blockade runners until she was ordered to set sail for New York on November 24, 1863. The "Juniata" was under repairs during the first half of 1864 at Philadelphia, and she departed on August 12th in search of the Rebel cruiser, "Tallahassee" which was reported off the New Jersey coast near Sandy Hook. She then served again with the North Atlantic Blockading Squadron until steaming to Wilmington, N.C., in early December to take part in the forthcoming Union naval operations. She was in the thick of the fighting during the first attack on Fort Fisher, and her daring upon this occasion cost her two officers and three men killed, and eleven men wounded. In the second attack on the fort five more of her crew were killed, and ten wounded, but the Rebel stronghold fell, thus effectively sealing off the Confederacy from further foreign aid. Transferred to the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron, on January 18, 1865, she docked at Port Royal, S.C. to repair damages received in the furious action at Fort Fisher. She then participated in the expedition to Bullís Bay in support of General William T. Sherman during his advance in the Carolinaís campaign. After receiving repairs again at Port Royal, S.C., she was ordered to cruise along the coast of Brazil as far south as Buenos Aires where her duty was to protect American citizens and their interests. Departing Port Royal on June 17, 1865, she arrived at Bahia, Brazil on August 8th bringing with her the new United States consul. With the exception of a cruise to the coast of Africa from June 12th to September 30, 1866, she remained in South American waters until April 30, 1867, when she sailed from Rio de Janeiro for home, arriving at Philadelphia on June 24, 1867. In late 1882, with Commander George Dewey in command, the "Juniata" departed from the New York Navy Yard, on a voyage which took her around the world through the Strait of Gibraltar, the Suez Canal, to Bombay, Batavia, Singapore and Hong Kong, among her many ports of call. She returned to New York on December 10, 1885, and operated from that port until she sailed for the Pacific on August 16, 1886. She returned to New York on February 4, 1889, and was decommissioned on February 28, 1889. The "Juniata" was sold at the Portsmouth Navy Yard, on March 25, 1891.

Wet plate, albumen photograph, mounted to 5 1/4 x 4 1/4 card. View of the ship in port. Period ink identification on the reverse, "U.S.S. "Juniata" taken off Cob Dock, New York Navy Yard." "G.P. Hunt, [1] U.S.S. "Juniata," Staten Island, New York, June 22, 1886." Light age toning and wear.

[1] George P. Hunt, who once owned this photograph, was commissioned Third Assistant Engineer, July 1, 1861; Second Assistant Engineer, December 18, 1862; First Assistant Engineer, January 30, 1865; and Chief Engineer, July 4, 1880. He died April 5, 1887.
