Description

Chromolithograph depicts the Battle of Antietam. Union infantry march in several lines across a grassy field toward the Confederate army in the distant background. Several men have fallen in the foreground. The Union flags are carried just left of center. The sky is hazy; a farmhouse and fencing is visible in the background. For more information on this and other Prang Civil War chromolithographs, see Prang's Civil War Pictures: the Complete Battle Chromos of Louis Prang with the Full "Descriptive Texts" edited and with an introduction by Harold Holzer.
