In 1874 a pair on gunboats was ordered in Britain, Chanchamayo and Putumayo (after Peruvian rivers of the Amazon basin), but for some strange reason, one of the vessels was named Pilcomayo, which is an Argentinian river.

Good morning, guys: The wooden steam corvette Unión was firstly built in France for the Confederate States, but American diplomatic pressure prevented the incorporation of the 4 French built corvettes to the "stars and bars" navy. 2 were bought by Prussia, and 2 by Peru. Unión was a fast vessel, abl...
