c. 1864 Charcoal Drawing of a Union Army Officer
c. 1864 Original Civil War Period, Charcoal Drawing, Union Army Officer, measuring 19" x 13.5", Choice Extremely Fine.
Full-length standing pose of a Union Civil War Officer in his military uniform, sword at his side and an American Flag in the background, measuring 19" x 13.5" backed with linen. The drawing is slightly folded under across the ankles in order to not show some damage at the lower edge and thus presents very nicely. There are some minor background creases and blemishes, light rubbing at area of lower left jacket; overall nice in appearance and is a most attractive original Civil War period drawing for display.
