Photo #: NH 46255
USS Miami (1862-65)
Photographed during the Civil War.
Frank W. Hackett, a former officer of the ship, wrote of this photograph in 1910: (it) "represents the Miami coaling from a schooner out in the sound somewhere, near Roanoke Island." That indicates that the photograph was taken in 1862-64, while Miami was serving in the North Carolina Sounds. It may have been taken at the same time as Photo # NH 60873, a view on board the ship.
