Description

Chromolithograph depicts the Battle of Kenesaw (sic) Mountain. The print features Union troops staged in several groups throughout the foreground and middleground. They load canons and advance toward the mountain--and Confederate troops--in the background. Clouds of smoke obscure the hills. 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.
