The Nashville destroying a federal merchantman, American Civil War, 1861-1862 (c1880)

The Nashville destroying a federal merchantman, American Civil War, 1861-1862 (c1880). Built as a passenger steamer, the Nashville was converted into a warship by the Confederates when the Civil War began. Escaping the Union blockade in 1861, she crossed the Atlantic, becoming the first ship to fly the Confederate flag in British waters. She returned to America the following year and was renamed the Thomas L Wragg'. She ended as a privateer, named the Rattlesnake, and was destroyed in February 1863 by the Union monitor USS Montauk after running aground in the Ogeechee River in Georgia. A print from Cassell's History of the United States, by Edmund Ollier, Volume III, Cassell Petter and Galpin, London, c1880
