Between December 25, 1859 and March 23, 1860, the Andrew Jackson made the passage from New York City to San Francisco, a journey that took approximately 89 days, becoming one of only two ships to make the journey at that speed. The Jackson recorded a time 4 hours faster than the Flying Cloud, and claimed it was the fastest ship in the world. The same image is on a sailing card printed by Nesbitt in 1862.
