    A Watercolor of Mosby's Men In Combat by Civil War Artist Alfred Von Erickson This vivid portrayal of combat was done in watercolor by noted Civil War artist Alfred Von Erickson of Fredericksburg. He documented many battles in and around Virginia, especially the exploits of Confederate raider Colonel John Singleton Mosby. In this watercolor and pencil Von Erickson depicts the close-quarters battle between Mosby's Lieutenant Thomas Turner and Captain Worthington of the 1st Vermont Cavalry. Measuring 16" x 11", the colors of this sketch are still vibrant with the Union blue and Confederate gray standing in sharp contrast in the center of the picture. In the background Von Erickson shows Mosby's men chasing Union cavalry. Signed 'A. E. Pencil sketch, Fredricksburg, Va.' in the lower right, it is matted and framed in a nice period walnut frame.
