[CIVIL WAR] JOHNSON, EASTMAN. The Wounded Drummer Boy.
Photographic reproduction of Johnson's painting dated 1873 in the image and signed on the mat by Johnson. Image 17 x 14 inches (44 x 36 cm); framed. A few spots to mat, unexamined out of frame.
This scene was inspired by a heroic story from the battlefield at Antietam in which a wounded drummer, no more than a boy, asked to be carried so that he could continue to advance his regiment as the battle raged and men fell around him.
