USS Red Rover
I just completed my first book, "Muskets and Memories: A Modern Man's Journey through the Civil War" (which took me 5-1/2 years to write and edit) and am in the research phase of my next work, a novel with the working title, "In the Heart of Dixie."
I want to use the USS Red Rover, the US Navy's hospital ship that was a former Confederate vessel that was captured at Island No. 10 in April 1862. She was towed from Island No. 10 to St. Louis and then to Mound City, Illinois where she was retrofitted as a hospital ship. Does anybody know where I might be able to find any deck plans with the hospital configuration, if any exist? I'm at a loss here.
