The War for the Union, 1862A Bayonet Charge
Harpers Weekly, July 12, 1862. Two page spread 15 3/4 x 23 wood engraving with title information, text to verso. Mounted, with some small tears, and chipping and foxing to edges; good. This wood engraving appeared in the same issue of Harpers Weekly as "The Surgeon at Work at the Rear During an Engagement," but focuses on the immediacy of battle. Homer spent time with the Army of the Potomac in Virginia during the summer of 1862 and drew his figures from life.
