"On the March to the Sea" Antique Print by A. H. Ritchie

About

This color print of On The March to the Sea by Felix O.C. Darley, and engraved by A.H. Ritchie, is a stunning portrayal of William T. Sherman’s notorious Georgia Campaign. Originally published in 1868 by L. Stebbins in Hartford, Connecticut, this print captures the actions of the Union general’s scorched earth tactic. During the American Civil War, General Sherman of the Union Army led a campaign through Georgia from November 15 to December 21, 1864. After capturing Atlanta, Sherman and his troops left to continue on to the port of Savannah. On the “march to the sea,” Sherman and his men destroyed military targets, but also anything that supported the Confederate cause such as farms, factories, and supply lines. Northerners cheered his success, yet his tactics caused outrage in the south. His “scorched earth” policy did not distinguish between civilian and military property and earned Sherman much disdain from the southern people. In this print, Sherman is sitting on his horse looking towards Savannah, as his men pry up railroads and round up cattle. In the scene, houses are burning, confiscated ammunition is piled up, and freed slaves are assisting the Union Army to dismantle infrastructure. The dynamic print offers an intriguing depiction of the famous march. CONDITION: Overall very good condition. The print, featuring a small portrait of Sherman in the bottom margin, has no notable damage. All colors are vibrant, and there are no tears or areas of foxing. The work has been beautifully matted and framed according to the highest archival standards.
