Artistic rendition of the Battle of Fort Hindman

The Battle of Fort Hindman was a 19th century American Civil War battle that took place in Arkansas. The battle began with Union Army's shelling of the Confederate Army's Fort Hindman, and ended with the fort's capture by Union forces. Among the bombarding Union ship's were the ironclads, USS Baron de Kalb, USS Louisville, USS Cincinnati, and the steamship USS Black Hawk.

A painting depicting this battle was scanned by the Talosians, while they downloaded the USS Enterprise's library computer in 2254. (TOS-R: "The Cage")

The image depicting the "Bombardment and capture of Fort Hindman, Arkansas Post, Ark. Jany. 11th 1863" was derived from a Currier and Ives print, circa early 1900s. The print is currently held by the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division. [1]
