ORIGINAL 1862 CURRIER & IVES'THE SOLDIERS MEMORIAL 4TH INFANTRY REGIMENT, COMPANY B, PENN RESERVE VOL CORPS' MEDIUM FOLIO LITHOGRAPH. This is just a great original piece. I have had other Soldiers Memorials with other regiments but I have never had one made by Currier & Ives.
This is really a cool piece. First off, it is a good size lithograph with the sheet measuring 20 x 15 3/4 and still has good margins. This print needed some restoration and looks to have gotten it long ago as it is laid on linen and has been for many years. It was obviously done to repair a major tear that runs from the top margin down the center all the way about half way down.It also repaired a few other tears around the other margins. The top third has wonderful vignettes with great original hand coloring. The area below is awesome in the way it presents all the soldiers including officers, private, corporals, and even musicians. It gives many of their ranks as well as what happened to many of the soldiers (Died, Killed in battle, discharged, promoted, etc). Really just a wealth of information. Lower left even has a spot for engagements and shows that they fought at Bull Run, South Mountain, Antietam, and Fredericksburg. All in all the piece still displays well. Page has toned and shows some soiling and tears. Some other odd discolorations as well. Really a very scarce and important piece of historical Civil War ephemera made by the most important early American Lithography company. CHECK THE PICTURES ON THIS GREAT PIECE.
