Subject: Burnside's Expedition-Naval Code's

Message Detail:
I research the Civil War on Roanoke Island, N.C. The island was the Burnside Expedition's first objective and consisted of 70+ vessels including Army and Navy gunboats,transports,supply ships,tugs etc.I'm looking for the following information:
1.A group from the Army Signal Corps accompanied the expedition.Any info on them?
2.Where can I find the Naval Signal Code's - Code of Boat Signals that would have been used by the expedition ships?
3.How did the Army and Navy co-ordinate their comunications?
Thanks for any help.
