(Inc RR & Ship) (2 T&H views) #831 Thirteen inch mortar DICTATOR. (Info on back explains that the gun was mounted on a flatbed RR car, and would quickly move right after it sent a volley, so the Confederate response would hit nothing, image mostly VG+ to Exc., lighter over distant hills, mt Exc.) And #2541 Gunboat MENDOTA in James River near Deep Bottom, 1864. (About 11 miles SE of Richmond. Sidewheeler uses up most of the width of the view. Image VG, mt VG+ to Exc.) MB$135.

(Ship) T&H #6619 Waiting for Exchanged Prisoners. (Flag-of-Truce sidewheeler NEW YORK. Damning info on back is likely part propaganda and part truth, describes starved Union prisoners and fat, healthy, well-fed and well-dressed Rebel prisoners. According to google, both sides treated the prisoners poorly, with the death rate a bit higher for the Union soldiers.) Tones a bit lighter in right print. Image overall VG to VG+, mt Exc. MB$100.
