Lith. of J. H. Bufford, Boston. This print shows the army crossing Bear Creek, Virginia with a huge baggage train stretching in many columns into the distance. John Bachelder (1825-1894) was a talented New England artist. During the Civil War he spent a great deal of time traveling with the troops, often making on-the-spot sketches. Many Union officers respected him and his work. General John Caldwell wrote in early 1863: "At Fair Oaks, Virginia, I frequently met Mr. Bachelder, at that time making sketches of various phases of the Battle of Seven Pines and Fair Oaks. Several of the sketches were shown to me, and I think them by far the most accurate of any I have ever seen.” Lith.of J. H.Bufford, Boston. 18th-19th Century Subjects , Historical , Civil War
