For reasons we will not go into here, we were looking for information about an American Civil War ship named 'USS Hunchback'. Our search led us to an essay by researcher Terry Foenander, who even identifies both the First and Second Assistant Engineers who were aboard the vessel.
The DNNHC (Department of the Navy, Naval Historical Center) offers eight historical images related to the Hunchback, seven of them by Matthew Brady. Also on the DNNHC web site may be found a brief history of the Hunchback, and an article on the naming of vessels. Readers further interested in Civil War pictures may enjoy the Library of Congress 'American Memory' Selected Civil War Photographs collection of 1,118 images, with an additional 200 autographed portraits in the James Wadsworth Family Papers).
