Vol. VII—No. 319. 16 pp. [81-96], with numerous stories, illustrations and cartoons. Front cover features portraits of Rear-Admiral David Porter and Major General John McClernand. The former officer was commander of the Mississippi River Flotilla, and the latter the commander of 13th Corps troops involved in the bombardment and attack of Arkansas Post, January 11, 1863. Additional illustrations include sketches of three Western Iron-clad Gun-boat rams—the “Indianola”,  “Choctaw”, and “Lafayette”.

Robert L. McCook”, “Southern Women Gloating Over Union Dead”, “Yankee Bones & Finger Rings.” Dedicated to Jeff Davis.

Exhibits mounting dots and light chipping along left margin. Light scattered spots of soiling, minor stain along left edge of cover page. Solid collectible. In protective sleeve, w/ white card backing.  [jp/lcd]
