    Salem Zouaves Recruitment Broadside. 18.75" X 24", printed by J. E. Farwell & Co., Boston, Massachusetts, Ca. late 1861 - early 1862. Nice even toning, professional repairs to three corners, overall very good condition. Behind archival mat in very attractive period frame. The venerable Salem Light Infantry, established in 1805, embraced the Zouave craze just prior to the Civil War. This broadside refers to the expiration of their initial three month term (in the 8th Massachusetts Volunteer Militia) and is recruiting for a company to be attached to the 19th Massachusetts Infantry. The 19th would be heavily engaged in the Army of the Potomac's 2nd Corps, suffering nearly 300 losses during the course of the war. Colonel Hinks and the two Devereux named earned promotions and did survive the war, however, not without sustaining serious wounds. A great Civil War recruiting broadside. Ex-John Henry Kurtz Collection.
