War Between the States

Multi-color lithograph done by Kurz & Allison, 76-78 Wabash Ave., Chicago.
Copyright 1893. Titled, "Fall Of Petersburg." Overall size is approximately 23 3/4 x 18. This is a reprint of the original Kurz & Allison 1893 edition done on heavy paper stock with vivid colors. There are wide 1 plus inch white borders on all sides. Circa 1960. It is my understanding that these were printed around the time of the Civil War Centennial celebrations using the original plates to print these. There were other reprints done much later (1979) of these Kurz & Allison Civil War battle scenes which are much smaller in size (about 12 x 15). Light edge wear in the border area that does not affect the content of the print in anyway, and which can easily be matted out. Very fine battle scene lithograph featuring the action between the Union forces commanded by General U.S. Grant, and the Confederate forces commanded by General R.E. Lee, on April 2, 1865. This would look great framed.

WBTS Trivia: Confederate Lieutenant General A.P. Hill was killed in action during the fall of Petersburg, Va. The loss of this strategic rail center, just north of Richmond, was the death knell of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia. General Robert E. Lee surrendered his forces 7 days later at Appomattox Court House, Va.
