Title continues "Both the Army and Navy were engaged in this great exploit, the most terrific of its kind on record. The Iron clads and Frigates under command of Rear Admiral Porter, : poured in a most destructive fire of shot and shell; while the gallant Soldiers under Genl. A. H. Terry rushed to the assault, and after a bloody contest of several huse, drove the Rebels : out of their stronghold, capturing over 2000 prisoners, the rebel Genl. Whitiny, and 75 Guns of large calibre; many of them of "celebrated English make." Three Cheers for the Army and Navy! Currier & Ives , Historical , Civil War
