The ex-Confederate ram Atlanta

Captured intact in the summer of 1863, the Confederate casemate ironclad Atlanta was refitted and recommissioned as a Union vessel. It's show here shortly after the giant fleet of the North Atlantic Blockading Squadron left Hampton Roads for the Bermuda Hundred Campaign on the James River.Courtesy of the National Archives
