United States Colored Troops lead the charge

Multi-color lithograph, done by Kurz & Allison, 76-78 Wabash Ave., Chicago, Copyright 1894. Titled, "Battle Of Olustee, Fla." Imprint below the illustration at lower left, "Feby. 26, 1864. Union: (Gen. Seymour). 8 U.S., 54 Mass., 1st N.C. Col. T. Loss: 193 K'd, 1175 W'd, 460 Miss. Conf. (Gen. Finnegan). Loss Abt. 660." Overall size approximately 23 3/4 x 18. This is a reprint of the original Kurz & Allison 1894 edition done on heavy paper stock with vivid colors. There are wide white borders on all sides. Circa 1960. It is my understanding that these were printed around the time of the Civil War Centennial celebrations using the original plates to print these. There were other reprints done much later (1979) of these Kurz & Allison Civil War battle scenes which are much smaller in size (about 12 x 15). Excellent battle of Olustee, Florida lithograph prominently featuring gallant United States Colored Troops in the forefront of the action. Would look great framed. Very desirable Florida and black Civil War troops related item.

WBTS Trivia: The Battle of Olustee, Florida, which took place on February 20, 1864, was the only major battle of the Civil War that was fought in the state of Florida. Union General Truman Seymour landed troops at Jacksonville, Fla., whose main objective was to disrupt the food supply that was subsisting the Confederate army. Meeting little resistance, he proceeded towards the state capital of Tallahassee, against orders, assuming that he would only face the small Florida militia. Unknown to General Seymour, Confederate forces at Charleston, S.C. sent reinforcements to the support of General Joseph Finnegan in Florida led by General Alfred H. Colquitt. Instead of the light militia resistance Seymour expected, he ran into strong Confederate opposition near Ocean Pond in Olustee, where the Union and Confederate armies collided and the ensuing battle of Olustee was desperately fought. Distinguished among the Union soldiers that fought that day were numerous regiments of U.S. Colored Troops including the now famous 54th Massachusetts Infantry who had earned immortality at the battle of Fort Wagner, South Carolina in August of 1863. The Union forces were repulsed at Olustee and retreated back to Jacksonville where they stayed for the remainder of the war.
