Birds Eye View of the Seat of War Around Richmond: Showing the Battle of the Chickahominy River, 29 June 1862
MEDIUM:Multi-stone lithograph
ARTIST:John Bachmann
ENGR. / LITHR.:.
PUBLISHER:John Bachmann, 115 & 117 Nassau St. New York
DATE:1862
SIZE:17 3/4 x 27 1/8" plus title and wide margins
CONDITION:Very good condition and color.
PRICE:$ 11,500
DESCRIPTION:   “The panoramic map, or bird’s-eye view, was one of the most popular and effective mediums for conveying information about the Civil War. To a public largely unskilled in map reading, these visually attractive representations were easily understood and appreciated. Bachman’s view depicts the fighting along the Chickahominy River on 29 June 1862 at the Battle of Savage’s Station and other engagements at Peach Orchard or Allen’s Farm near Fair Oaks.” (Stephenson & McKee, p. 240). The view is drawn from an aerial perspective above the north bank of the Chickahominy, with Richmond and the James River in the middle ground. Petersburg, Lynchburg, Charlottesville, and Gordonsville rim the distant horizon. The dramatic print is alive with armies in conflict, troop movements, and the smoke of battle, one of the most visually impressive maps or views for Virginia of the Civil War period. [Stephenson & McKee, “Virginia in Maps”, pp. 202 & 240 (full page color illustration); Stephenson, “Civil War Maps in the Library of Congress”, 621 (reproduced on pp. 270-271).

This print shows the Army of the Potomac crossing Bear Creek, Virginia, on June 29th, 1862, with a huge baggage train stretching in many columns into the distance. John Bachelder (1825-1894) was a talented New England artist. During the Civil War he spent a great deal of time travelling with the troops, often making on-the-spot sketches. Many Union officers respected him and his work. General John Caldwell wrote in early 1863, "At Fair Oaks, Virginia, I frequently met Mr. Bachelder, at that time making sketches of various phases of the Battle of Seven Pines and Fair Oaks. Several of the sketches were shown to me, and I think them by far the most accurate of any I have ever seen.”
*Fine original hand coloring.
