Photo #: NH 55834
One of the "Ellet Rams" (under false colors!)
Sepia wash drawing by F. Muller, circa 1900.
This painting, based on Photo # NH 53868, suffers from that photograph's original incorrect identification. Intended by the artist to depict the Confederate ram steamer General Sterling Price, and featuring the Confederate flag, it instead represents one of the U.S. ram steamers of the Ellet fleet. Only one of the "Ellet Rams", Queen of the West, saw Confederate service, and she did not look like the ship depicted here.
