Admiral Farragut's Ships - USS Monongahela

The steamship USS Monongahela, in an artist's sketch.  The Monongahela, a second-class screw sloop mounting 14 guns, had the gunboat USS Kineo lashed to its port side for the Port Hudson run.  The ship was heavily damaged in the battle, but drifted back down river to safety.
