***A OPEN LETTER***

More than a generation has passed away since the last battle of the Civil War was fought, and since the victorious armies of the Union passed in review on the 22nd and 23rd of May, 1865, before the President of the United States in the City of Washington.

This picture has been reproduced from the original made by Frank Leslie's corp of was artists. This picture was drawn and engraved directly from sketches made on the scene of battle by the most famous artists of the time, and can therefore be relied upon as absolutely accurate. They are really the most authentic Civil War Illustrations that have ever been publiished.

Nothing recalls the past so forcibly as pictures of the scenes taken at the time and on the very spot.
