From the Richmond Whig, 4/19/1865

PICTORIAL HISTORY OF THE WAR. - The distinguished historian and artist, Benson J. Lossing, has visited Richmond for the purpose of collecting documentary, pictorial and other materials for his forthcoming “History of the great Civil War.” - The general plan of this work, we learn, will be like that of his Pictorial Field Book of the Revolution, so well known and highly appreciated in every part of the country. It will contain about two thousand engravings on wood and steel. Mr. Geo. W. Chiles, Chestnut street, Philadelphia, is the publisher.
