The Warren Winslow Confederate Privateer. She collided with a sunken supply ship associated with Fort Ocracoke, in 1862. This very successful Confederate privateer was trying to assist the crew of the sinking Prony, when she ran on the sunken supply ship and sank nearby. She is located in the shallow shoals near the wreck of Frederick Walton.
The Prony was a French Corvette. Prony was a French ambassador ship traveling from Florida to New York, when she got into trouble off Ocracoke Inlet in 1862. The nearby Yankee ships ignored the sinking vessel while Confederate forces tried to assist and save the crew, creating an international incident. Winslow was sunk trying to respond to the disaster.
