Recrossing the Potomac

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“General Banks’s Division recrossing the Potomac from Williamsport, Md., to attack the Confederate army under General Jackson--the band of the Forty-sixth Pennsylvania Volunteers playing the National Airs on the Virginia shore. The retreat of General Banks was, under the circumstances of the case, a great military necessity, and admirably conducted; but, directly the pressure was removed, he returned to the Valley to drive out the invader. Our illustration is of the impressive scene of recrossing the Potomac on the mission of vengeance and patriotism."— Frank Leslie, 1896
