Hand to Hand Combat

You are viewing a leaf from an original Civil War Harper's Weekly newspaper featuring a stunning picture of Hand to Hand combat in the Civil War.  The illustration was created by an eye witness to the action, and shows incredible detail on trench warfare, and a bayonet charge.  The illustration is captioned, "The Men of the Northwest Will Hew Their Way to the Gulf of Mexico with Their Swords. - General Logan in Congress, 1861. [See Page 362]"
