Winslow Homer Civil War Double Folio Engraving

"The War For The Union, 1862 - A Bayonet Charge"

You can see why that in Winslow Homer's Magazine Engravings, author Philip C. Beam simply says that A Cavalry Charge and A Bayonet Charge "are among his masterpieces of the fray" and Gordon Hendricks in "The Life and Work of Winslow Homer" describes them as "remarkable, easily the best of any Harper's Civil War action illustrations."

Below is the detail of the lower left corner showing Homer's signature and the Union forces arrayed for their charge with the drummer boy falling down.

Below is a picture of the exciting engraving matted in a complementary color. It will also come in a protective plastic sleeve. The engraving is in great shape for a centerfold, which usually has lots of problems at the fold.
