Line engraving, based on a sketch by Alexander Simplot, published in "Harper's Weekly", 1862, depicting ships sunk by the Confederates off their fortifications at Island Number 10, circa 7 April 1862. As identified on the engraving, the ships are (from left to right):
CSS Red Rover,
CSS Ohio Belle,
CSS De Soto,
CSS Kanawha Valley,
CSS Winchester and
CSS Mars. Most of these vessels, some of which were not sunk, were later employed by the Union forces.

|127k||"Hamburg Landing, Tennessee, Commissary Depot of Major-General Halleck's Army." Published in Harper's Weekly, May 31, 1862 and originally sketched by artist and eye-witness, Alexander Simplot. Hamburg Landing was about 4 miles below Pittsburg Landing, [Commissary] Depot of Gen. Hallek's Army. It was an encampment of Union soldiers along the river. The CSS Ohio Belle side-wheel river steamer had been captured April 7, 1862. In Simplot's original drawing of the steamboat the name appears on the side of the boat as, "Ohio Belle." However, the published print does not indicate the name of the boat. Perhaps it was removed for security purposes.||Tommy Trampp|
