Original Civil War Pen and Ink Illustration,

by John Douglas Woodward (1846-1924). Two drawings on a single 15.5 x 13.5 sheet, apparently done for Century Magazine. One a view of the "Shebang", the officers quarters of the U.S. Sanitary Commission, with tents, horses, and officers posed outside; the other a view of the General Post Office of the Army of the Potomac near Brandy Station, Virginia -- a tent in the pine woods with two soliders posed outside. With Woodward's cartouche in the lower left. A Virginian by birth, Woodward studied in Richmond with E.V. Valentine, W.L. Shepard and J.A. Elder. He lived variously in Richmond and New York and is widely known for his illustration work.

Condition:With printer's intructions in two places on the recto, slight surface soil on blank page margins. Handstamp of the Art Deparment of the Century Co., New York, on verso.
