The US Capitol Dome:
You are viewing an
original 1864 Civil War print of the just finished US Capital Building.
The print is captioned, "Interior of the New Dome of the Capital At
Washington". This print is from an 1861 edition of Harper's Weekly, the
most popular illustrated newspaper of the day. Note that this is not a
reprint, and I absolutely guarantee its authenticity. On the day this leaf
was printed, Abraham Lincoln was President of the United States, and the
Civil War in its opening chapter.
This is a rare and
collectible print, showing the interior of the United States Capital,
shortly after the dome was completed. The print shows a number of people
in period dress admiring the interior of the capital. Another group of
people are seen in the mezzanine looking at the artwork on the wall. The
capital was a great source of pride for the people. this is a really nice
print, in fine condition. There is a small margin tear, not affecting the
This print will make
a stunning display when framed and placed in your office or study. It
would make a great gift for anyone interested in politics. I guarantee
