Title: South Carolina Coast, July 28, 1861

Description: The Rebel privateer Petrel, lower left, is struck by an eight-inch shell, blowing a hole in the Petrel's side and quickly sinking her in one of the most short-lived careers of a Confederate privateer during the war; the Union warship, USS St. Lawrence, a 52-gun frigate, center, was mistaken by the Petrel's skipper, Captain William Perry, as a Federal merchant ship, which it pursued, but became the prey when St. Lawrence spotted the Petrel; Four sailors on the privateer drowned, while Perry and the rest of the crew were captured, placed in irons, and sent to a Union prison;
