Out of stock
On July 21, 1861 two armies battled on the fields near Manasas, Virginia at Bull Run. The armies were part of a divided nation – a Civil War that separated north versus south political views. The preparation was meek with the demand that the Union advance against the Confederate troops by the public. At first, the Union was successful. Then, the Confederate reinforcements arrived signaling a retreat back to Washington by the Union. Nearly 5000 were killed in the battle and the war continued.
The Battle at Bull Run was a Confederate victory, however Currier & Ives portrayed it as a win for the North because the Union was their market. Indeed, many battle prints of the Civil War were not factual.
Presented is an original Currier & Ives lithograph titled along the bottom portion, “Battle of Bull Run, VA – July 21, 1861 – Gallant Charge of the Zouaves and Defeat of the Rebel Black Horse Cavalry.” It measures 9-3/4″ x 13-1/2″ with expected aging, corner tears and display holes present.
