Log book and journal kept by William W. Dwier, acting carpenter, aboard the Steam Sloop Wyoming during the United States Civil War. The ship was sent to the Pacific to search for the CSS Alabama. The first part of this volume contains a log and documents the date, the days steaming, latitude, longitude, distance run, and remarks for most days from 1861 to 1864. On page 48, Dwier continues his journal (from volume 1) with the first entry describing the battle of Shimonoseki on July 16, 1863. The next entry is for September 17, 1863 and runs until July 23, 1864 when the voyage ended in Philadelphia. As in Dwier’s journal contained in Volume 1, these journal entries describe the weather and sailing conditions, port cities, and passing ships as the ship and crew traveled from Japan to Malaysia to South Africa to Saint Helena to Saint Thomas to Philadelphia.
