ARMY OF THE POTOMAC—INSPECTION OF THE SECOND PENNSYLVANIA, COLONEL GIBSON.—[SKETCHED BY WILLIAM WAUD.]

GENERAL GRANT'S CAMPAIGN.

WE give on this and the next page, and on pages 520 and 521, several sketches relating to the Army of the Potomac and General GRANT'S campaign.

GENERAL STANNARD'S HEAD-QUARTERS, illustrated on this page, is one of the most delightful places within the lines, although only a hundred yards from the enemy's front, and a considerable distance in advance of General SMITH'S head-quarters

It is situated in a little ravine, with a brook running at each end, and the hottest days it is clear of dust and refreshingly cool. The birds build their, nests in the trees overhead. and the squirrels play around the quarters just as if they were not

within reach of whistling bullets and bursting shells. General STANNARD commands the Fist Division of the Eighteenth Corps.

We give also on this page a sketch representing the INSPECTION OF THE SECOND PENNSYLVANIA (Next Page)
