Photograph (Stereoview) of the Confederate Steamer The Planter which was Commandeered by Slave Robert Smalls in Making his Escape in Charleston, S.C.

This stereoview is from “The Southern Series” and shows The Planter fully laden down with cotton bails.  It’s about the only photo that we have found of this famous ship in Black history.  A photograph that has a great “story” connected with it.
