Bluffs along the river

The eighty-foot bluffs of Port Hudson, looking northward toward the 150-degree bend in the river. The Confederates had powerful batteries of siege guns located in earthworks along the top. The photo was probably taken sometime after the siege. Tents can be seen on the bluff, probably the occupying Union Troops.
