    Seeking transportation service records during Civil War

    Charles Webster Wayfarer

      I have conflicting reports from a pair of ship's captains transporting army materials in 1863. Are there extant records to research and discover the truth? Were these transportation services conducted by contract or enlistment? Were government ships used or private ships? Do ship's manifest lists exist to determine which ship, ship's captain, etc. carried this material? Thank you in advance for any and all advice and comments
