About this Item

Lithograph printed in colours with additional hand-colouring. Signature in lithograph: "C. Parsons, '63" The Eutaw was one of twenty-seven doubler-ender, paddle wheel gunboats of the "Sassacus class" (named for the vessel of that name which rammed the Confederate Albermarle ). A lithograph of a sister ship, the Chenango , was also published by Endicott & Co. She was built of wood in 1862 and fitted with eight guns. The duty of these rams was to open up and protect the Union ports and guard the river traffic in the Gulf and along the Mississippi. She was broken up in 1867, soon after hostilities ended. Charles Parsons (1821-1910) British born, spent most of his long life in America creating superb marine prints and paintings. Much of his print work was published by the two major New York lithography firms: Currier & Ives and Endicott & Co. His ship portraits are among the finest of the era and demonstrate a love and a profound understanding of boats and life at sea. Catalogue of the Marine Collection at India House , number 282.
