Here are some interesting Official Records concerning the naval aspect of the war. Unfortunately many of the Confederate records of this part of the Rebellion were never recovered, and those that were are contained in the Navy Official Records. These were taken from the Army Official Records.

Norfolk Naval Yards A report on the attempted blow up of the dry docks there.

Incident with USS Yankee

Not much, just goes to show the frustration at the time.
Incident with USS Monticello Another small incident.
Capture of the Steamers W. B. Terry and Samuel Orr Good inland waterway activity.
Incident with USS Fanny Rebs capture this one. Kinda interesting.
Incident with the Hannah and Breaker An example of burning a ship rather than let it fall into enemy hands.
Engagement at Plum Point: Good gunboat action.
