Found in 4 Collections and/or Records:
An artificial collection consisting of black and white and color lithographically reproduced prints depicting historical battle scenes and soldiers throughout American history from the 1780s through WWII-era. Artists represented include Currier and Ives, H. Charles McBarron, Arthur Beaumont, Kurz and Allison, Gary Sheahan, Barse Miller, Aaron Bohrod, and Edward Laning.
This artificial collection was begun as a catch-all for small single gifts and purchases, and to make them easier for scholars to search them. This assemblage consists primarily of documents, correspondence, photographs, broadsides and artifacts, dealing mostly with United States history.
