Antique black and white print published in Harper's Weekly on October 7, 1876. Dramatic and moody scene shows a fort with graves and ghostly Civil War soldiers in the foreground and important buildings of Washington DC in the background. 1876 was an intense election year and difficulties between the South and the rest of the county caused great concern. This is the reason for the subtitle of the image: "The Spirit of the War Revived. The War Was Not and Shall Not be a Failure." Can be hand colored by our professional colorist for an additional charge. Text on back is slightly visible through the page. Overall good to very good antique condition with some toning, minor stains, edge wear, and slight creases in the paper. Should look good if framed. Page dimensions are approx. 22.25 x 16.25 inches. Note: any "rainbows" or strange patterns in the image are called moire pattern- caused by taking a digital photo or scan of the many parallel lines in the print- these are not in the print and we can try to take more photos if you are concerned.
