The USS Supply saw service in the Mexican War, the 1848 Dead Sea Expedition, Commodore Perry's expedition to Japan, on the Tripoli coast, and in bringing camels to the United States for the army camel corps. The USS Nipsic was a gunboat that took part in the blockade of Charleston and captured the Confederate blockade-runner Julia.

All relics are in excellent condition.
