artist engraver publisher
The black and white engraving features a scene from the Baltimore Riot of 1861, a civil uprising between Confederate sympathizers and members of the primarily Massachusetts state militia regiment en route to the national capital at Washington. The engraving may have originally appeared in a bound volume, as evidenced by the holes at the engraving's bottom.
