Thomas Nast's Original "On
to Richmond" Civil War Print
This, in my opinion, is the most dramatic
Civil War Battle Scene to be found. It is a large 16x20 illustration by
Thomas Nast, and is from an original 1864 Harper's Weekly. The image shows a
determined union force making its way across the battlefield on its way to
Richmond. Fallen soldiers are seen encouraging their comrades on. The men
have a look of fierce determination on their face as they press onward. The
tattered flag is still flying over the men, as if to encourage them on.
