Description

The black and white steel engraving features a scene from the Capture of New Orleans. The scene takes place on water, and several water crafts and smoke fill the scene. The engraving is printed on white paper with black ink. The engraving appears to have been taken from a bound volume. (Possibly from Everett A. Duyckinck's History of the War for the Union: Civil, Military and Naval.)
