On the March to the Sea Print by Alexander Hay Ritchie, after F.O.C Darley, 1868

This first edition print of "On the March to the Sea" is a dramatic portrayal of General Sherman and his troops' notorious march through Georgia, which took place in 1864-1865. We see the destruction the Union troops left in their wake--burning a farm building, ripping up the train tracks, and rounding up cattle. In the foreground, freed slaves assist the Union soldiers. Beneath the main image, a small portrait of Sherman is centered in the caption. Framed dimensions: 31 1/4" H x 40 1/4" W x 1 1/2" D
