Participating in attempt to recapture Henderson, KentuckyEdit
After taking part in the joint Army-Navy expedition to recapture Henderson, Kentucky, (19–24 July 1862), she served as a receiving ship at Cairo, Illinois, until April 1864.
Returned to owner in response to lawsuitEdit
Since she had not been libeled as a prize, her owners brought suit for her return. The final adjudication restored Clara Dolsen to her owners, and she was turned over to the U.S. Marshal for the Southern District of Illinois in May 1864, for delivery to her owners.
