USS Cairo had the dubious distinction of being the first armored vessel in the history of warfare to be sunk by an electrically detonated torpedo. On December 12, 1862, in the Yazoo River approximately 10 miles north of Vicksburg, Cairo was struck by two torpedoes, sinking in less than 12 minutes with no loss of life.

USS Cairo was raised in 1964, by a group of private citizens who called themselves "Operation Cairo." and is currently on display within the

Vicksburg National Military Park
