‘Harper’s Ferry, 1862’ Print – Sharpsburg Historical Society



SHS – 1  Harper’s Ferry, 1862 (Garnet W. Jex – Sharpsburg Historical Society, Sharpsburg Maryland). Twenty-one miles upstream – truly an engineering feat. Union troops had quickly laid a sturdy pontoon bridge. The B&O trains ran on regular schedule to Ohio. All during the war, this marvelous rebuilding efficiency after rebel raids would be repeated. A Union garrison of 10,000 at Harper’s Ferry and 3,000 at Martinsburg could be a threat to Lee’s invading army. With outer edges of historical notes and references around the border this artwork is a history buff’s dream!

NOTE: The actual artwork is 18(L) X 13.75(W) X 0.25(H) but is resting on and sold with a 16(L) X 20(W) X 0.25(H) cardboard and preserved in plastic.
