OriginalThe Chickahominy- Sumner's Upper Bridge: 1862 watercolour by William McIlvaine.
Reason
Military artists are such wonderful first-hand accounts of things we'd otherwise not have a good record of. This is a lovely, valuable watercolour.

  • Support -- What a lovely watercolor! It is quite detailed for a nighttime scene. The picture illustrates an important issue in the (U.S.) American Civil War, as mentioned in the article on the Chickahominy River. - CorinneSD (talk) 22:42, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
