Civil War collectors and afficionados have until March 31st to get their hands on an original Alfred Waud Civil War drawing.  The item is being auctioned off on eBay currently.  It is apparently being liquidated from the Fred Ray estate.

A small paper on the verso is attached that say’s in Waud’s hand: “All quiet along the Potomac tonight except now and then when a picket is shot as he walks to and fro by a rifleman in a thicket.”

The starting bid is $4,999.00 – happy bidding.
