Content: Printed on border: "The authorities at Washington had decided that Port Royal, on the coast of South Carolina, answered best the requirements for a naval rendezvous, and an expedition was fitted out on the 21st of October, 1861, which consisted of twenty-seven vessels under the command of Commodore Dupont. The largest fortification was Fort Walker, on Hilton Head, which was attacked early on November 7, 1861, and captured, when the transfer on shore was made of all the troops who had been spectators of the engagement."
