Jacksonville in Flames

Caption reads:
The ruins of the County Court House.

From Acres of Ashes: "Then the Law building on the other corner became a flaming volcano and it radiated heat against the walls of the court house as a regiment shoots it volleys. The red bricks changed to pale, then they glowed so fiercely the eye could not rest upon them. But they stood. The roof crushed in, but the walls stood . . . and the enemy retired discomfited."
