Hello,
I am categorizing American Civil War pictures and I find this one you uploaded : File:Shsp-wl-image-wmm.jpg.
I can't figure out what this is and if this has anything to do with the ACW ? --Jpda (talk) 09:34, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

If you read the page that the image links to and the page before that, you would learn that it is the basic idea of the water line of the future Ironclad "CSS Virgina" to be constructed. The WL means water line.

The images I use come from the books I transcribe. I do not use an image from another source. Sorry that Poe looks so young in this work and doesn't look fearsome as he drank, and years passed. William Maury Morris II (talk) 11:44, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
