casualties and at the mercy of the enemy who was delivering a raking fire from every side,
she struck her colors out of regard for the wounded aboard, and all aboard were taken
prisoners. Carrying out his duties bravely through this action, Stout was severely wounded
and lost his right arm while returning the rebel fire.
