Here is a truly beautiful piece! This is an original Chromolithograph to honor the service of a Civil War soldier. These Chromolithograph images were designed and intended to look like oil painting. This one is for Jacob Kuneman who served witht he 64th Ohio Infantry. It measures 17-1/2 inches by 23-1/2 inches and comes beautifully framed in the original wooden frame that measures 20-1/4th inches by 28 inches. At the top the piece is featuring an eagle and four United States flags perched atop a union shield surmounting a much larger shield decorated with a bugle, a United States flag, veteran's medals, the Ohio state seal, and hand-painted text describing Kuneman's service. A laurel wreath encircles the bottom half of the shield and a ribbon bearing Kuneman's name complete the lower portion of the composition. Copyright printed to underside of ribbon reads "Copyrighted, March 1885." This piece displays superbly as you can see. The records show that Jacob Kuneman began his nearly four years of service in the Civil War by enlisting as a private on October 29, 1861, mustering into Company I, Ohio 64th Infantry that same day. He was made a corporal later that year, on November 25, and a sergeant on July 3, 1863. The escutcheon relates many more details of his military career, including his service in the 20th Brigade, 6th Division of the Army of the Ohio from December of 1861 until October of 1862; the 3rd Brigade, 1st Division of the Army of the Cumberland until January of 1863; the 3rd Brigade, 1st Division of the 21st Corps until October of 1863; and the 3rd Brigade, 2nd Division of the 4th Corps until he mustered out in March of 1865. As such, highlights of Kuneman's service include his participation in the Battle of Shiloh, Stones River, Chickamauga, Mission Ridge, Resaca, and Jonesboro. Kuneman was also listed as wounded and as a Prisoner of War in Franklin, Tennessee on November 30, 1864. This is a great piece that is ready for your relic room wall.
