HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, Nov. 29, 1862 The most desired print in this issue would be the very nice full page by noted artist Winslow Homer titled: "Thanksgiving In Camp".
The front page has a nice portrait of: "Major-General A. E. Burnside, Commander of the Army of the Potomac" with an article on him. Other prints inside include: "The Army of the Potomac--Thoroughfare Gap" "Warrenton, Virginia" "McClellan's Adieux to His Officers at Warrenton, Virginia" "The 'Passaic' Trying Her Large Gun at the Pallisades..." "Launch of the British Iron-Clad Screw Frigate 'Caledonia', 34 Guns, at Wookwich".
The nice doublepage centerfold shows: "Gen. McClellan Taking Leave of His Army' before a large, cheering crowd of soldiers. Other prints include: "The Advance Guard of the Army of the Potomac Attacking the Rebels Near Snickersville".
The back page has two political cartoons: "Old Mother Buchanan at Wheatland" & "Another Diplomatic Mess". Complete in 16 pages.
