Schussele: How We Won the Battle
Christian Schussele. "How We Won The Battle." Philadelphia: Bradley & Co., 1865. 10 1/2 x 15 3/4. Mezzotint and engraving by John Sartain. Full margins. Very good condition.

A touching image of a Civil War veteran recounting "How We Won The Battle" to a group of women, (including a grieving widow), children, and one older man. The absence of young men is telling, and the soldier's lost leg and crutches poignant. A moving tableau, the print also shows much of the middle class American home: furniture, textiles, a portrait of George Washington, a newspaper on the floor, and an almanac tied to the window ledge. This image was based on a painting by Sartain's friend, the noted Philadelphia artist Christian Schussele. $400
