�� Hand drawn in India Ink this original antique Folk Art Drawing of the Side-Wheeler USS J.P. Jackson is from the Civil War Period. USS John P. Jackson (1860) was a steamship acquired by the United States Navy during the beginning of the American Civil War. She was assigned to the Union blockade of the Confederate States of America, as well as the bombardment of Mississippi River ports. It is so accurately drawn it may have been painted by one of the Union Sailors that served on her. The artist�s name is G. W. Jack. Measuring 7 5/8� by 13� this pen & ink drawing is on mid-19th century paper. As you look at the close-up photographs you can see that every detail of this Steamship Gunship is drawn in perfect proportions, right down to the iron rivets. There are cannon on the stern and bow as well as several finely drawn 5/8� tall Navy Sailors doing various duties, plus the Captain standing just in front of the smokestack. Just below the water�s edge on the right is written, �Act. Vol. Luet. L. W. Pennington, Comdg.� � As you can see this drawing was folded and probably carried around
