Description
This 1862 print depicts a Union camp, composed of 10 rows of tents. Soldiers stand conversing around the tents, as three armed stand watch in the foreground of the image. An American flag dominates the center of the camp. Camp Chase was located in Arlington Heights, Virginia, and the 15th Connecticut Volunteer Regiment stayed here during November 1862, before taking part in the Battle of Fredericksburg the next month. It was commanded by Colonel Dexter R. Wright, whose name is listed on the print.
This piece was created by Louis N. Rosenthal, who was born in Russian Poland. He studied art in Berlin before immigrating to the United States around 1850. He settled in Philadelphia, where his business produced lithographs, mezzotints, etchings, and portrait miniatures.
