THE BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG! ALSO AMAZING SKETCH OF GEN. U.S. GRANT
Harper’s Weekly, New York
July 25, 1863
Here are woodcut sketches of action in the Battle of Gettysburg showing Union batteries firing and troops marching in the center of the field! (You can gaze at these for an hour and not get bored!) An accompanying article is 1 1/2 columns in length packed with the action and horror that was Gettysburg–perhaps the deciding struggle of the Civil War when Robert E. Lee faced off against George C. Meade.
The front page shows a huge portrait of General Ulysses S. (“Unconditional Surrender”) Grant in uniform that begs to be framed. Inside, there are two full pages on the Siege of Vicksburg, Miss., including blowing up the Confederate Fort Hill–this just leaps out at you! And, as usual with Harper’s, there are other full page war illustrations, and exciting ads as well.
16 pp., complete and unedited. Superb, clean condition–a gem!
