This is a selective collection of Harper’s Weekly woodcut Civil War images during the second half of 1865.

Events resulting from horrors of Andersonville and trial of H. Wirz occurring during this period are in Part 2.

About This Document -- Several years ago, Fauquier resident Paul Mellon kindly gifted a collection of Harper’s Weekly news magazines to the Fauquier Historical Society. They are a great educational source of engraved images highlighting Civil War events published when most newspapers were only words. The images illuminate the story.
