U.S. Steamer Wateree  U.S. Steamer Wateree
OUT152. Lawrence & Houseworth, San Francisco. 326. U.S. Steamer Wateree–Double Ender.  USS Wateree, a 1173-ton Sassacus class “double-ender” steam gunboat, was built at Chester, Pennsylvania. Unlike her numerous wooden sister ships, she was constructed with an iron hull. Commissioned in January 1864, Wateree was sent around Cape Horn to the Pacific, arriving at San Francisco, California, for post-voyage repairs in November 1864. From early 1865 until mid-1868, the gunboat patrolled along the west coasts of Central and South America as a unit of the South Atlantic Squadron. On 13 August 1868, while she was at the Port of Arica, Peru (later part of Chile), an earthquake resulted in a huge tidal wave striking the anchorage, breaking several ships loose from their anchors and casting them ashore. Wateree was carried nearly five-hundred yards inland, where she was deposited relatively intact. However, refloating and repairing her would have been impossibly expensive, so she was sold where she lay in November 1868. Reportedly, her hulk was subsequently employed as an inn. CDV. G. $275

Wilder House, Fort Scott, Kansas Wilder House, Fort Scott, Kansas
OUT165. No ID. Wilder House, Main & Wall, looking West, Fort Scott, Kansas. Established and garrisoned by the U.S. Army from 1842–1853, soldiers at Fort Scott assisted with the protection of the Permanent Indian Frontier. After the army abandoned the fort in 1853, the buildings were purchased by local settlers at a government auction in 1855. The former military post became the center of one of the largest towns in Kansas Territory. Between 1855 and 1861, the citizens of Fort Scott experienced the violent unrest that preceded the Civil War on the Kansas and Missouri border. Eastern newspapers described this violence as “Bleeding Kansas,” a result of the national controversy concerning the extension of slavery into the new territories. Murder, rape, mayhem, robbery, and arson were committed by bold free-state and pro-slavery advocates in the name of their cause. On January 29, 1861, Kansas entered the union as a free state, but the turmoil of “Bleeding Kansas” continued throughout the Civil War. During the Civil War, Fort Scott was a U.S Army district Headquarters, quartermaster supply depot, training center, and recruitment station. It was strategically vital to the defense of Kansas and the Midwest. A battle over the fort occurred in August 1861 just across the Missouri line in the Battle of Dry Wood Creek. The battle was a pro-South victory for Sterling Price and his Missouri State Guard. Price did not hold the fort and instead continued a northern push into Missouri in an attempt to recapture the state. James H. Lane (Senator) was to launch a Jayhawker offensive behind Price from Fort Scott that led to the Sacking of Osceola. The ill will of these actions was to be the basis for the 1976 Clint Eastwood film The Outlaw Josey Wales. After the Civil War, Fort Scott was a premier city of the frontier, one of the largest cities in eastern Kansas. There are several Union soldiers in this image. The Wilder House is still standing today, recently having celebrated its 150 birthday. CDV. VG. $375
