Pittsburg Landing

"Pittsburg Landing. From a photograph taken a few days after the battle."

Engraving after an artwork by J. O. Davidson, published in "Battles and Leaders of the Civil War", Volume I, page 489. It shows six transports at Pittsburg Landing shortly after the Battle of Shiloh, in April 1862. The original caption reads: "Of the six transports, the one farthest up stream, on the right, is the Tycoon, which was dispatched by the Cincinnati Branch of the Sanitary Commission with stores for the wounded. The next steamer is the Tigress, which was General Grant's headquarters boat during the Shiloh campaign. On the opposite side of the river is seen the gun-boat Tyler.
