Title:

Battle of Balls Bluff - Rescue of Col. Baker's Body - watercolor painting, 1869

Creator/Contributor:

Online Archive of California

Abstract:

Mounted, possible original watercolor, by unknown artist [initials G.E.P.], dated 1869, depicting the Oct. 21, 1861 battle near Leesburg, VA. No evidence this was a Currier & Ives, most of their Civil War lithographs being produced during the war, but they did have a stable of artists who produced original watercolors, used to print black/white lithographs, which then were handcolored. [Oversize boxed].
