|Earth Pre-Federation Database - USS Louisville|
|The USS Louisville was an American Cairo-class ironclad that was in service with the United States Navy in the mid-19th century. The
Louisville participated in several river campaigns in the American Civil War, including the Battle of Fort Hindman, where it assisted in the shelling of the Confederate
Army's Fort Hindman.
A print depicting this ship participating in the battle was stored in the USS Enterprise's library computer in 2254, and was among the materials viewed by the Talosians when they scanned the Enterprise computer.
