The Battle of the Wilderness - framed print

$935.00

Large, colorful litho in excellent condition, framed in a solid wood, handmade frame with museum-grade acrylic that protects from UV rays and is non-glare.

This was printed by one of the nation's leading lithographers, the Chicago firm of Kurz and Allison, and reprinted for the Centennial of the end of the Civil War.

Really a beautiful piece that captures the battle raging, ideal for anyone interested in key moments in the Civil War.

The Battle of the Wilderness was fought on May 5–7, 1864. It was the first battle of Lieutenant General Ulysses S. Grant's 1864 Virginia Overland Campaign against General Robert E. Lee and the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia.

The fighting occurred in a wooded area near Locust Grove, Virginia. Both armies suffered heavy casualties, nearly 29,000 in total, a harbinger of a war of attrition by Grant against Lee's army and, eventually, the Confederate capital, Richmond, Virginia.
