Color document printed in 1864. Framed the item meas. approx. 28.25 x 22.50 inches.

The top of the document has a stylized version of the Wisconsin Coat of Arms above five medallions flanked by two Navy battle scenes. One shows mortar boats and ironclads bombarding Island No. 10 while the other shows the Monitor and the Virginia. Each of the five medallions contain a drawing of one of the officer’s in the battery with the Captain at center. Under the medallions is a riband that reads “BATTERY “D,” 1ST BATTALION”.

Below this are three pillared columns flanked on one side by a US flag and a heavy gun on a barbette carriage over a riband that reads “WISCONSIN” and on the other side by another US flag and a heavy mortar over a riband that reads “VOLUNTEERS.” Within each of the three columns are the names of the officer’s and men of the battery.

The bottom of the piece has a Navy battle seen at lower left and a fort firing a volley on the right. Between the two scenes is a standing Columbia dressed like an Indian. One either side of Columbia are two medallions. One is empty but the other has a drawing of an enlisted man from the battery. This may be the soldier who owned this memorial. It is impossible to tell.

The frame looks to be the original and is in nice condition for its age. Backing has been replaced.

Despite some moderate foxing and a small water stain along the edge the item is in good condition. The right side has two horizontal separations but these are closed and not too noticeable. All colors are strong.

Battery D was mustered in Nov. 7, 1863; left the state Feb. 1, 1864, for New Orleans and was sent to Fort Jackson on garrison duty.  In July it moved, to Fort Berwick, Brashear City, La., where it remained until June 1865.  It was mustered out Aug. 18, 1865.    [ad]
