Army of the Potomac

You are viewing an original 1864 drawing of the Army of the Potomac.  The illustration is captioned, " An Advance of the Army of the Potomac. - Sketched by Alfred R. Waud. - [See Page 39]". The picture shows a number of officers on horseback, and a number of battle flags. Troops are seen marching in the background.  A wagon train is pictured as well. In the front is Meade; near him are Generals Sykes, Humphreys, and Pleasanton, with Chief-Engineer Duane. The whole picture, though representing but a single moment of action, gives a great image of this army going into battle.
