Image is by E. & H. T. Anthony & Co. and shows a long line of Union infantry preceded by mounted officer’s and Pioneer’s marching down Pennsylvania Ave.

The dome of the Capitol building can just be seen through the haze in the background. Heading down the street, toward the viewer, is at least a full brigade of infantry. Each regiment looks to be marching in a column of companies with the companies in line of battle. At front are six mounted officers in line and between the mounted officers and the marching infantry is a smaller body of men. A close look reveals that each man is carrying an ax. No doubt these men are the Pioneers attached to the brigade.

Image is grainy but clear. One half seems to have a little better contrast than the other.

The mount and image have a moderate amount of surface dirt. The edges of the mount are faintly marked “PHOTOGRAPHIC HISTORY” and “THE WAR FOR THE UNION.”

Reverse has a green label with canceled orange 2 cent tax stamp. Label reads “WAR VIEWS GRAND REVIEW OF THE GREAT VETERAN ARMIES OF GRANT AND SHERMAN AT WASHINGTON ON THE 23D AND 24TH MAY 1865 INSTANTANEOUS. / THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC. LOOKING UP PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE FROM THE TREASURY BUILDINGS. MAJ. GEN. PARKS AND 9TH ARMY CORPS PASSING IN REVIEW. / NO. 3314.” Publishing information follows.

An interesting image to study.  [ad]
