JEFFERSON LIGHT GUARDS / COMPANY D, 10th REGIMENT, PA. R.V. CORPS. [followed by three columns of names, a roster of the company]

[Chicago?] Northern District of Illinois: Entered... by Joseph Miller, 1863. Broadside, 56 x 46 cm., color lithograph, illustrated with portraits, battle scenes, and domestic scenes. The upper third of the broadside shows an American eagle, its wings spread, holding a snake in its beak; other scenes are depicted around the eagle. The lower two-thirds gives the roster of privates and officers, separated by four decorative columns, each with a representative figure standing on top. A brief history of the company is given in one panel along the base of the columns, the date of its mustering in, and the battles and engagements it participated in, in two more panels. Some overall age toning, else very good. Item #62137

Joseph Miller appears to have used this general image to commemorate other companies, changing the portraits and roster to fit. OCLC does not list this version, the Jefferson Light Guards, but does list one done for the Wadsworth Guards, Co. G, 104th Reg't. N.Y.V Infantry [at SUNY Geneseo], and one for the First Delaware Battery [at AAS].

Price: $600.00
