Description

    [Harper's] Original Civil War Sketch: Ferrying Cattle for the Rebels. Matted pencil & watercolor sketch signed "W. H. Webb", an artist in-the-field, likely intended for publication in Harper's Weekly. It measures 9" x 4.75", numbered 8 in a series, and titled "Crossing cattle for the Rebels." A similar caption indicates the location "at the mouth of the Red River". The scene depicts two steam boats ferrying scows or flatboats filled with cattle. The verso is inscribed: "Crossing cattle at the mouth of Red River from Texas into Louisiana for the Rebel army/ Red River Arkansas". Texas beef... those guys had it pretty good!
