This is an illustrated page from the article printed by Harper's Weekly covering the fighting the Hartford was involved in on 24 April, 1862. During the campaign to capture New Orleans the Hartford was the flagship of Admiral David Farragut. On the night of 24 April, while attacking Forts St. Phillip and Jackson, the Hartford was attacked by a fire raft. Under the skillful leadership of Farragut the Hartford was saved from the fire and continued the attack. The USS Hartford survived the Civil War and continued to serve the US Navy until 1956, when she sank at her berth in the Norfolk Navy Yard. The illustration measures 9 1/2" wide and 11" tall. The one page section of the article is mounted on a piece of cardboard and is protected by shrink wrap. This one page from the Harper's Weekly looks just the way it did when it was printed 157 years ago. There are no smudges, stains, rips, tears, creases or folds on the page. If you collect Civil War documents this piece will fit right in!
