This page is dedicated to prints showing eye-witness accounts of famous Civil War Battles.  Each print is original, and I absolutely guarantee the authenticity. Each leaf was printed within days of the battle presented.

Storming Missionary Ridge

This is a superb print from an original 1863 Harper's Weekly. The print is captioned, "The Army of the Cumberland- The Fourth Corps Under General Gordon Granger, Storming Missionary Ridge".  The print also has smaller captions, identifying; prisoners, the rifle-pits, the Rebel rifle-pits, and the line going in to support.  This is a dramatic illustration of this important battle.  It presents a wide panorama of the battle, with lots of detail in the foreground, and lots of action in the background. 

Missionary Ridge

A dying soldier can be seen being carried off the battlefield on a stretcher in the foreground. A Union soldier is pictured behind a log breastwork resting and drinking from his canteen.  The hill in the background is covered with troops. There is simply too much interesting content to describe it all here.  Click on the image to see a close-up. This is a centerfold measuring 16x22, and is in excellent condition. The illustration is by Theodore R. Davis.
