USS Pink (1863) was a steamer commissioned by the Union Navy during the American Civil War. She served the Union Navy's struggle against the Confederate States of America in various ways: as a tugboat, a gunboat, and as a small (184 ton) transport.
Pink, a wooden screw tug built in 1863 as Zouave at Newburgh, New York, was purchased by the Union Navy 14 December 1863 from New York and Glen Cove Steam Navigation Co.; and commissioned 6 February 1864, Acting Master John B. Dicks in command.
The new tug sailed for the gulf early in April 1864 but was detained in the North Atlantic Blockading Squadron during the spring and early summer for repairs at Norfolk, Virginia, and service as a small transport on the James River.
She resumed her voyage south with sister tugs USS Tritonia, Athenia, and USS Rose 26 July and joined the West Gulf Blockading Squadron in Mississippi Sound on 5 August, the day of Admiral David Farragut's great victory in Mobile Bay.
She supported Union operations, primarily in Mobile Bay, until after the end of the Civil War.
