Description

Chromolithograph depicts the Capture of Fort Fisher. The print features the Confederate Army entrenched on a hill on the left side of the image and Union troops storming the Wilmington, North Carolina beach on the right side. Clouds of smoke from active canons and muskets obscure the scene. 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.
