    Description

    Civil War: Original Pen and Ink Drawing of "View from Union Battery Number 4, Near Yorktown, Virginia", signed, "E.J.M.". This fine drawing pictures General George McClellan's 13-inch, model 1861 mortars of the 4th Union Battery facing the Confederate forces of General John B. Magruder. The drawing measures 10.5" x 6.5" (sight size, not examined out of the frame) and is attractively matted and framed to an overall size of 20" x 15". The drawing is signed in the lower right corner with the initials "E.J.M.". The artist is not identified, but the same initials are on drawings that appeared in Century Magazine in the 1880s. The back of the frame has stickers indicating the drawing was displayed at the Columbus Gallery of Fine Art, the Edwin A. Ulrich Museum of Art, Wichita State University, (1975), and sold through Christie's Auction House. The drawing was purchased from the Century Magazine Collection.
