Harper's Ferry

You are viewing a picture of Harper's Ferry as it looked at the end of the Civil War. The illustration is from an original Harper's Weekly newspaper, and was created by an eye-witness to the scenes depicted. The leaf shows three views of the town. One shows a touching image of a woman in a cemetery, kneeling before a grave. Doubtless the grave of a loved one killed in the war. The leaf shows many important details of everyday life at the close of the war.
