The "Harvest Moon" was a side-wheel steamer, 546 tons displacement and 193 feet in length, beam 29 feet and 8 feet draft. She was commissioned on February 12,1864 at Boston by Charles Spear, and launched in 1863 at Portland, Maine. She was acquired by Commodore Montgomery November 16, 1863. She sank in Winyah Bay, South Carolina February 29, 1865 and was abandoned on 21 April of that year.

There appears to have been a Lane painting of 1863: "Oil painting of the Harvest Moon." The present location of the original is unknown.
