One of Bachman's six lithographic views of the Confederate States in the series: "Panorama of the Seat of War." Shows the American Gulf Coast from Vermillion Bay, Louisiana, east to Santa Rosa Sound, Florida, and inland as far as Vicksburg, Mississippi, from a perspective facing north. All the major towns on the coast are located, as well as roads, railways, lighthouses, and sites of military interest. Provides detail on the defenses of New Orleans, and Pensacola, Florida, which appear to be under blockade.
John Bachmann (fl. 1849-1885) was a landscape draftsman and lithographer.
