Floating Battery

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Scene on the floating battery, Charleston Harbor, during the bombardment of Fort Sumter. A very important factor in the bombardment of Fort Sumter was an immense floating battery, which did effective work in the silencing of the fort’s guns. Major Anderson directed many of his shots at the floating battery; but while it was struck fifteen or eighteen times, not the slightest impression was made upon its iron-cased sides."— Frank Leslie, 1896
