Description: Photo #: NH 2376 U.S.S. Hornet and Prizes Phototype by F. Gutekunst, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, circa the later 19th Century. The steamer here presumably represents USS Hornet (1865-1869), which it resembles to a modest degree. However, USS Hornet was not commissioned until late April 1865 (as USS Lady Sterling), did not receive the name Hornet until July 1865, and did not capture any prizes during the Civil War.
