Printed broadside, 4.75 x 7 in., mounted to 9.5 x 7.25 in. The Reasons Why McClellan Did Not Capture Richmond. London Times, n.d., ca 1861-1865. Broadside text printed on green paper with ornamental border. Below title, text reads, "First—He had two / 'Hills' / To pass. / Second—A / 'Stonewall' / To mount. / Third—A / 'Longstreet' / To march through. / And seeing the impossibility of attempting such a capture, he wisely concluded to / 'Skedaddle.'" Broadside is mounted on a period printed cartoon that apparently mocks the Union Army's retreat following the First Battle of Bull Run. The cartoon features the 12th Regiment of New York at center.
Broadside with some light creasing; otherwise in fine condition.
