1880. Original wraps. Near Fine. Wonderful album of period, captioned photos of "Fortress Monroe", which was a Union stronghold in Hampton, VA, at the southern tip of the Viginia Peninsula, also known as "Freedom Fortress". The album inlcudes 25 pasted-in photographs (including 2 panoramics) of Ft. Monroe and the Old Point Comfort. Among them are photos of the "colored" Normal school, the building in which Jefferson Davis was imprisoned, the U.S.S. Maine and the U.S.S. Columbia. The album has held up very nicely in its dark-blue, ribbon-tied card wrappers, with circular exterior-shot of Fortress Monroe affixed to the front panel. Light rubbing to the titling, otherwise clean as could be, with each photo in near-pristine to pristine condition. Oblong quarto, c. 1880. (Inventory #: 12973)
