Federal Battery on Morris Island, Feb. 12, 1864


"This scene was sketched by the artist from the top of St. Michael's Church in Charleston, by means of a telescope. There is a gun-boat out in the harbor; every time there was a flash, the artist states that the yankee soldiers in the batteries would disappear as by magic."

Conrad Wise Chapman, 1898
