Rare West Virginia Broadside – “CAMP OF 5th VIRGINIA VOL. INFANTRY U.S.A.” – “OUR CHAPLAIN”
At the bottom of this 8 x to inch 1864 Falls of Kanawha, West Virginia broadside, is written:
Gives each of us a copy of this Engraving, to show our friends the way we sing and hold meetings in camp. He desires us to tell them to pray for us and him, that we may prove faithful to our country and our God, and not be found wanting in any day of temptation and trial.”
The illustration shows a religious service with the Chaplain playing the portable pump organ as the men sing along… a great “folksy” glimpse at life in the army!
Some staining but not faded and overall a great display piece.
