The image describes the H.M.S. ""Rattler"" (left) capturing the slaver
""Andorinha"" (right). The Illustrated London News, the source of this image, reported that
the vessel was in charge of a Brazilian commander and that she was often employed in the
slave trade from the Bight of Benin. The slaver was captured off Lagos, at present-day
Nigeria, in August, 1849. The image is reproduced courtesy of the Manuscript, Archives and
