UNION SOLDIER'S DRAWING OF GEN. CHARLES HECKMAN'S HEADQUARTERS
A superbly-executed drawing of the headquarters of Gen. Charles Heckman, in pencil on a 10" x 7 1/2" sheet, drawn by First Lt. Charles Hayward of the 23rd Mass. Obviously a very skillful artist, Hayward must have used a straight edge to draw every minute detail of the structure, including all "gingerbread", adding a tent labeled "Office" at left. He has captioned the drawing: "General Heckman's headquarters at Newberne by C. Hayward". Margins are chipped with a stain at lower-right; nevertheless one of the best-accomplished drawings we've encountered.
Estimate $ 300-400
