1863 CDV. Original photograph of a Currier & Ives print based on a sketch by Harper's Weekly illustrator Thomas Nast, presents a household servant confronting two children who have built a fort out of kitchen utensils. The girl waves an American flag while the boy brandishes a toy gun with a bayonet, and is dressed in the flamboyant Zouave uniform, originally worn by French soldiers in North Africa, which was popular among some volunteer Civil War regiments. During the Civil War, prints for the northern home market often featured sentimental images of women and children that supported the war effort. This print was one of several that Nast created for Currier & Ives featuring humorous scenes of combative children on the home front. The CDV was a way to popularize these images during the war. Back is blank.
