This image is thought to have originally been prepared by and printed in the U.S. Civil War era newspaper the "New York Illustrated News" (1859-1864). The image title "Interior of Fort Walker, at Hilton Head, Immediately After its Bombardment and Evacuation" was given with a later reproduction of the image in the publication "The Pictorial Battles of the Civil War," published by the Sherman Publishing Company in New York, 1884. The image was originally sketched by Thomas Nast.
