Battery Chevis, March 4, 1864 - by Conrad Wise Chapman

Painting by Conrad Wise Chapman.

“This battery was nearer to the enemy than any of the others, and was very far out.  In the distance can be seen Battery Simpkins; Morris Island, and one of the ships belonging to the blockading squadron.  All these batteries were manned by the regular artillery.” – Conrad Wise Chapman, 1898
