Catalog Record | Enlarge Image | Adopt a Book Home

This sentimental lithograph by Currier & Ives includes in the lower margin lines from the patriotic poem “The Brave at Home” by Thomas Buchanan Read. The scene is based on a similar print by the Kellogg firm in Hartford, Connecticut, a competitor of Currier & Ives.  Unlike many prints of the Civil War era, the focus is not on a specific battle or regiment but rather on the sacrifices made by families at home.

Adopted by Caroline Graham
