MALVERN HILL A wonderful, limited edition lithograph by the renown military-theme artist, Don Stiver (now deceased). This lithograph was printed in 1988 as a limited regular edition of 1100, all signed and numbered. Of that small edition, this is serial number 2......yes, a single digit from the beginning of the edition. On July 1, 1862, the US 5TH Artillery fought and held Malvern Hill against the massed Confederate Infantry and Artillery. This was the final battle of the Seven Days Battles or Peninsula Campaign and the Union Army carried the day. General Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia was fighting to push Major General George B. McClellan’s Army of the Potomac into the James River. The 5TH Artillery’s tubes were part of an estimated 250 Union artillery pieces under the command of Colonel Henry J. Hunt, McClellan’s Chief of Artillery. Although by the end of the day when the smoke cleared, the Union forces successfully repulsed the Confederate attacks, the Union’s Peninsula Campaign to gain Richmond had failed and McClellan abandoned further attempts. This lithograph is new, unframed, original in all respects in the original Don Stiver sleeve with accompanying information sheet. This lithograph has been stored flat since release 25 years ago.
