Battle of Chickamauga 

This is an absolutely stunning print from an original 1863 Harper's Weekly.  The print is captioned, "The Battle of Chickamauga- Thomas's men Repulsing the Charges of the Rebels." The print shows incredible detail, presenting a close up view of an infantry line.  This print has a wealth of historical detail, down to the soldiers gear and uniforms.  A line of soldiers can be seen firing their rifles into the enemy lines.

Some soldiers are firing, while others are reloading. The Canons and heavy artillery can be seen in the background.  Several soldiers are dead on the ground, and others are falling.  This print is full of action, and will make an unbelievable display!

Battle Chickamauga

Army of the Cumberland

Cavalry Charge By the Army of the Cumberland

This is a dramatic illustration of a Civil War Cavalry Charge from an original 1863 Harper's Weekly.  The print is captioned, "The Army of the Cumberland- Charge of the First Wisconsin and the Second Indiana Cavalry on the Rebels".   This print shows a lot of action, with a close up view of a group of Cavalry soldiers in a full battle charge.  

Many soldiers have their swords drawn, while others are shooting their Colt Pistols.  There is an incredible amount of detail in this print.  There is an interesting subtlety to this print.  Off to the side near a bush is a man on horseback watching the battle.  He is drawing in a sketchbook.  My guess is that the artist drew himself into the picture, illustrating artists of the day were in the middle of the action to capture the images.  Click on the image to see a close-up. This leaf measures 16x11, and is in excellent condition. The illustration is by Theodore R. Davis.

Army of the Cumberland

John Morgan Raid

John Morgan's Highwaymen

This is a fantastic illustration from an original 1862 Harper's Weekly.  The print shows a group of John Morgan's Highwaymen raiding a town in the west.  The print is full of action, and shows this group of  men pillaging the town.  Guerrilla warfare really got its start during the Civil War, and John Morgan's raiders perfected  this form of warfare.  

Many of his men went on to become famous outlaws after the war, exploiting the techniques they learned while under his command.  The print shows one of the highwaymen pistol whipping an old man in the foreground.  A woman is pictured being thrown to the ground by her hair.  Buildings are being set afire in the background.  A small child and mother are seen crying over a dying man in the street. Some of the highwaymen are shown loading plundered goods into a wagon.  This is a really striking illustration, and will make a great display.
