Lot Details

Lot 38
WOOD and GIBSON Inspection of Union Troops at Cumberland Landing, Pamunkey, Va.,
circa 1862, possibly printed by Alexander Gardner. Unmounted albumen print, 7 3/8 x 9 1/2 inches (187 x 242 mm), verso with pencilled notations identifying the subject, noting that the tents are of the 5th New York Zouaves (under Warren), [also known as Duryée's Zouaves]. Some creasing, a few minor edge tears within the margin.
The Zouave regiment whose tents are depicted here was annihilated at Manassas in the Second Battle of Bull Run. The image is usually found as part of Gardner's Photographic Sketch Book of the War [1865-66], v. 1, no. 16., but this print shows no trace of ever having been mounted and may be an earlier printing.
Property from an International Corporation.
