Item No. CV2765MF Category


Outstanding carte view which captures a scene from Camp Griffin, Virginia. A long wagon train can be seen in the foreground with white canvas tents covering the ground for as far as the eye can see. The train is seen departing from the camp of the 2nd Vermont Infantry. A man, woman and child stand in the field to the left of the wagon train watching in amazement as the long train of supplies passes by. This is known view which is published in the book “A Very Fine Appearance”. The Burlington Daily Times described it in November of 1861 as “the Vermont Brigade, with six companies of Cameron Dragoons and Mott’s and Ayre’s Batteries all under General Brooks command, went out on a foraging expedition in the direction of Vienna and returned at night with about seventy-five loads of corn and hay etc.  The camp would be established during the fall of 1861 about 4 miles above Washington D.C. The area now is a residential subdivision unfortunately. This has a very faint ink in on the reverse which reads “Hancock’s Brigade Camp Griffin”.  Back marked out of Philadelphia. Really neat view!
