Marmora, a stern wheel steamer built at Monongahela Pa., in 1862, was purcha.sed by the Navy at St. Louis Mo., 17 September 1862 from Messrs. Brenan, Nelson, and McDonnell; and commissioned at Carondelet, Mo., 21 October 1862, Capt. Robert Getty in command.

Early the next morning she stood downriver to join the Mississippi Squadron in operations against the Confederate river stronghold at Vicksburg Marmora first action occurred when she attacked and destroyed several barges at Lake Providence, captured two skiffs and demolished a flatboat further down stream. On 29 November Marmora discovered heavy enemy fortifications 20 miles from the mouth of the Yazoo River; taking special care to avoid any encounter with them until in company with the fleet.

On 5 December, Marmora helped to refloat ram Queen of the West, aground on Paw Paw Island. On 11 December she ran 20 miles up the Yazoo River and discovered several suspicious looking nbjects floating on the river. When she fired into one of them, a tremendous explosion occurred which shook the ship from stem to stern though at a distance of 50 feet or more. She carefully avoided the others and left final destructions of the remaining mines to riflemen ashore.

The next day, Marmora led Signal, Cairo, and Pittsburg up the Yazoo until the Union ships sighted several torpedoes. Cairo commenced shelling the right bank and sent out a boat to investigate the nearest torpedo. As the boat towed the torpedo alongside, another infernal machine exploded under Cairo, wipping the bottom entirely out. As she rapidly sank. Marmora and the other Union ships sent boats to the rescue and saved everyone.

Marmora and her sister ships continued to remove torpedoes and to cooperate with the Army during probing actions seeking to find a weakness in Vicksburg's defenses. On 27 December the squadron heatedly engaged Confederate batteries at Drumgoulds Bluff That day, Porter reported the Yazoo clear of torpedoes within one-half mile nf the southern guns.

The next day, his gunboats' mobile fire kept Confederate troops off balance while General Sherman's troops landed to attempt to capture strong southern works at Chickasaw Bluff, a vantage point upstream from Vicksburg. Two days later, despite excellent support from naval guns. Sherman's troops, hindered by heavy rains and opposed by strongly reinforced Confederate units, reluetantly withdrew.

Marmora participated in the attack on Fort Hindman, Ark., 4 to 11 January, when it was taken; the post was 80 miles above the mouth of the Arkansas River and was consequently important in Union efforts to control the flow of supplies, from the west across the Mississippi at Vicksburg and to southem armies in the east. In February Marmora joined four other ships in preparations for the Yazoo River Expedition, departing Helena 27 march. The joint Army-Navy Expedition captured CSS Fairplay and destroyed newly constructed Confederate batteries 20 miles up the Yazoo. For the next few months, Marmora concentrated on patrol duty and supuly runs. Guenrilla activities caused Marmora to stop at Gaines' Landing 13 through 15 June to burn houses. Steaming up the White and Little Red Rivers 8 August, tho ships sought information on the location of General Price's army, the ships found St. Charles, Ark., deserted as Union forces kind taken it 16 June and had control of White River. Cavalry from the ships did encounter Confederate resistance on landing at Devall's Bluff 17 August. In November Marmora worked at the mouth of the Yazoo to prevent Confederate blockade of the river.

Although Union forces had taken Yazoo City, their position was not secure. Confederates attacked the city en masse 8 March 1864 causing Marmora and other rams to steam to the rescue Marmora remained off this point with the other ships for several months, as Union forces mounted the campaign in Red River. Marmora next returned to Mound City and was placed in reserve while still in commission. After fighting, stopped, she decommissioned 7 July 1865 and was sold at Mound City to D. D. Barr 17 August 1865.

Alfonso Ferrero La Marmora

Our editors will review what you’ve submitted and determine whether to revise the article.

Alfonso Ferrero La Marmora, (born November 18, 1804, Turin, Piedmont—died January 5, 1878, Florence), Italian general and statesman who, while in the service of Sardinia–Piedmont, played an important role in the Risorgimento.

A graduate of the Turin Military Academy, La Marmora entered the army in 1823 and first distinguished himself in the Italian wars of independence against Austria, especially at Borghetto and Peschiera (May 1848). On August 5, 1848, he rescued the Sardinian king Charles Albert from Milanese revolutionaries, who had resented the King’s armistice with the Austrians. He was promoted to general in October and served as minister of war until November he later suppressed an insurrection at Genoa (April 4–5, 1849). He also commanded (1855) the Sardinian forces in the Crimean War. As minister of war again until 1860, he reorganized the Italian Army.

La Marmora served as premier of Piedmont from July 1859 to January 1860, as well as governor of Milan and the king’s lieutenant in Naples. In September 1864 he again became premier, and as minister of foreign affairs in April 1866 he concluded Italy’s alliance with Prussia against Austria. As chief of staff in the ensuing war, however, he was held responsible for the overwhelming defeat of the Italians by Austria at Custoza (June 24, 1866). La Marmora retired to private life shortly afterward, although, after Rome was annexed to the Kingdom of Italy in 1870, he was appointed the king’s lieutenant there. Among his several works, Un po’ più di luce sugli eventi politici e militari dell’anno 1866 (1873 “A Little More Light on the Political and Military Events of the Year 1866”) seeks to justify his actions at Custoza.

Outpatient Physical Therapy Services

Physical therapists evaluate patients to identify areas of dysfunction. Then, they create a plan of care to address the areas of dysfunction using strengthening exercises and other modalities including manual manipulation. The goal of physical therapy is to reduce pain and to increase function and mobility.

Occupational therapy helps patients to safely perform the activities of daily living such as dressing, feeding and personal hygiene. Occupational therapists also help patients who are experiencing cognitive problems after concussion, stroke, brain injury or other neurological disorder.

Post Concussion treatment

Most concussions resolve on their own in a few days. In contrast, when symptoms linger, there are therapies to reduce dizziness, regain balance, and to improve attention span.

Vestibular therapy

Vestibular therapy helps to improve balance and visual coordination.


Kinesiotaping is useful in providing support, pain management, edema management and for positioning.

Arthritis/Rheumatoid Arthritis

Treatments for arthritis include modalities (heat, cold, electric stim) to reduce inflammation, and exercises to increase mobility.

Auto Injuries

The goal of therapy after auto injuries is to manage pain and restore normal function through exercise, strengthening, manual therapy, and instrument aided manipulation.


Patients are evaluated to identify underlying cause and treated accordingly. They are analysed for balance deficits and given proprioceptive and strength building exercises.


Individuals with gait problems are evaluated for balance deficits and offered exercise to improve form and walking pattern.

Hip and Knee Replacements

The goal of therapy after hip and knee replacement is to reduce pain, restore mobility and function and return safely to the activities of daily living.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization is a technique used to break up scar tissue and increase circulation. It is performed using small rigid instruments to allow the therapist to better manipulate soft tissue.
