There’s an illustration of soldiers camping in snow at night on page 1 of this article. Does anyone know its source? And where a better copy can be obtained?
I think it may be a picture of Alabamians left out in the cold by Virginians the night of Feb. 6/7 1865.

Got it on ebay! Nonetheless, I didn’t see a citation for the illustration. It can be viewed at http://digital.archives.alabama.gov/cdm/compoundobject/collection/voices/id/6224/rec/1

I’m just about done illustrating “The Petersburg Regiment, 12th Virginia Infantry.”
