A. Davidson, Secretary. Stamp on back for Johnson’s, Capital Blvd, Nashville. Wooden frame. Sight: 27-3/8″ x 23-1/2″, Framed 30″ x 26″. Note: Pendleton acted as Lee’s artillery chief during the Civil War and became chairman of the Lee Memorial Association afterwards, dedicating himself to preserving Lee’s “sacred memory.” This print was sold during a lecture tour in the 1870s in order to help pay for a memorial monument in Lee’s Chapel.
