Thomas Nast's Original "The Capture of Lookout Mountain - General Hooker Fighting Among the Clouds" Print

You are viewing an incredible Civil War illustration by Thomas Nast.  It is entitled "The Capture of Lookout Mountain - General Hooker Fighting Among the Clouds."

This is an absolutely fabulous Nast drawing showing the Battle for Lookout Mountain.  The leaf is over 140 years old, and shows an incredible view of the battle.  There were low hanging clouds on the day of battle, so the top of the mountain was actually protruding through the low hanging clouds.  This creates an image of the soldiers actually standing on clouds as they fight each other.

Thomas Nast "Fighting Among the Clouds"  (Click on Image for Enlarged View)

The illustration shows an intense battle for Lookout Mountain on a cloudy December morning. Injured and dieing soldiers are seen on the ground. A soldier is shown charging up the mountain on horseback, led by a brave color bearer carrying a tattered flag. In the background more soldiers are seen, and far in the distance the enemy is bravely defending the mountaintop.

Thomas Nast's distinctive signature can be seen in the lower right of the illustration.
