Our shop was proud to publish renowned artist Keith Rocco’s first dozen signed limited edition prints. Represented in museums and private libraries throughout the nation, Rocco is known for his sensitive Victorian-style renderings of important battles.
A small stock still remains in our warehouse. We offer these signed chromolithographic “remainders” while they last.
The Samuel Pry Mill was used as a hospital during the battle of Antietam. It was indeed an “Island of Mercy” during what would become the bloodiest single-day battle in American history.
This print was commissioned by Dr. Gordon Dammann to benefit the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in Fredericksburg, MD.
