Brazilian Steam Frigate
For those that don't know - the Library of Congress has a library of over 1,000 Civil War related images that are free for anyone to use and peruse. From time to time, I thought I might share some of my favorites.
This is a shot of a Brazilian steamer in the Navy Yard of Washington D.C in 1863. The sailors have manned the yards in expectation of a presidential visit.
