Edward Sachse. [Camp Wool, Baltimore, MD. (Stewart’s Grove). Seventh Regiment, (National Guard), N.Y.S. Marshall Lefferts, Col, Comdg.]
Baltimore: E. Sachse & Co., 1862. Chromolithograph. 10 3/4 x 16 ¾. Margins trimmed to image with a tear into image. Print is mounted to a heavier piece of paper. Else, colors and clear image.
During the American Civil War many images were printed for use by military personnel and the general public in the form of letterhead writing paper and envelopes and souvenirs such as this separately issued print. These were sold during the war years and often sent home to show the family where the boys and men were stationed. No doubt, such pictures were sold after the war at regimental reunions, so they had an active market.
This is one of the more interesting prints of a camp in near Baltimore, Maryland which was based a few miles west of the city in the present day area of West Baltimore and Monroe Streets.
