Most famous of all Homer Civil War prints...
Item # 172624
November 15, 1862
HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, November 15, 1862 Although there are many fine prints in this issue certainly the most desired would be the full page Winslow Homer print titled: "The Army of the Potomac--A Sharp-Shooter on Picket Duty."
Other nice prints in this issue include the full front page captioned: "Convalescent Soldiers Passing Through Washington to Join Their Regiments" in front of the Capitol, showing the new dome still under construction (a notable print!). Also a fullpg: "The Army of the Potomac--'Little Mac' Making His Rounds"; a three-quarter page: "Map of the Seat of War In Virginia"; a very dramatic doublepage centerfold: "The War For the Union--Surprise of Rebel Guerrillas by a Squadron of United States Cavalry."; fullpg: "Destruction of a Rebel Salt Factory on the Coast of Florida..."; a halfpg. print of: "Summit Station on Maryland Heights" and a one-third pg: "The Rebel Steamer 'Oveto' running the Blockade of Mobile...".
The back page has a political cartoon: "The Pirate 'Alabama' ". Complete in 16 pages.
