The Destruction of the Norfolk Naval Yard

Destruction of Norfolk Naval Yard
"Destruction of the United States Navy-Yard at Norfolk, Virginia, By Fire, By the United States Troops, on April 20, 1861" and "Destruction of the United States Ships at Norfolk Navy-Yard, By Order of the Government." From Harper's Weekly. New York: May 11, 1861. Double page, 13 1/2 x 20.

With the secession of Virginia, the U.S. Navy yard in Norfolk became vulnerable to seizure by the Confederates, so the order was given to destroy the facilities, supplies and ships left there. This was done on April 20th, as seen in a dramatic Harper's Weekly print, though the destruction was only partial. $55
