Descrizione
comprising 
A Narrative of Her Wartime Adventures 
by Virgil Carrington Jones 
and 
An Account of Her Raising in 1964 
by Harold L. Peterson

The U.S.S. Cairo was sunk in the Yazoo River by a Confederate torpedo in December 1862. A century later, she was raised and salvaged along with thousands of priceless artifacts. The boat, currently owned by the State of Mississippi, is now at Pascagoula, Miss., awaiting reconstruction. 

The artifacts, through an agreement with the State of Mississippi and the Warren County (Miss.) Board of Supervisors, have been entrusted to the National Park Service for preservation, care, and display at Vicksburg National Military Park. 

This publication is designed to interpret both the boat and the artifacts to visitors at the park.
