Alfred R Waud's sketch of Thanksgiving in a Civil War camp, Thursday November 28th 1861. This may be the camp of General Louis Blenker.

Alfred Rudolph Waud was an artist who was most remembered for the sketches that he made as a correspondent for the Civil War. Since the technology didn't exist for photos to be printed in newspapers, Waud was instrumental in bringing scenes of the Civil War to the public.
