Thomas Nast's Original "Battle Before Vicksburg" Print

This is a dramatic Thomas Nast illustration of the Battle for Vicksburg.  It is an original leaf from the pages of an 1863 Harper's Weekly.  The leaf is over 140 years old. The illustration shows an image of a Union Bayonet Charge into reinforced Confederate lines.  The union forces are charging directly into confederate artillery, and fortified, entrenched Rebel lines.

The image has a lot of action, and hand to hand combat.  Closer inspection of the leaf reveals a wealth of historical details about the soldiers weapons, uniforms, and fighting tactics.
