Photographic War History. The War For The Union. 1861-1865. No. 6051. Fort Sumter after the Bombardment. (Numbers 6051 and 6052 are entirely different scene) This is a view of a portion of the exterior of the celebrated Fort Sumter, in Charleston Harbor, S. C. The heavy batteries on Morris Island aided by a fleet of Monitors, gave this fort a terrible bombardment. It was, at the commencement of this bombardment, a handsome, symetrical [sic] fort. This photograph was made after the bombardment, and shows what a fearful pounding the fort has received; in fact it is scarcely more than a mass of ruins. Shot, shell, and dismounted and broken cannon are scattered about like leaves of a forest. [Taylor & Huntington stereo card]
