Evacuation Day--Parade of First Division, New York State Militia. (Evacuation Day,  American Revolutionary War, New York City, Manhattan, Harper's Weekly, A Journal of Civilization, antique newspaper) Issued 1866, New York, by Harper & Brothers. Original 19th century antique offset printed image. An actual printed leaf taken from this scarce old periodical, published at the date listed. An image of celebration, this full page woodcut print depicts the New York State Militia parading in celebration of Evacuation Day. The holiday marks the day in 1783 when the British Army departed from New York City on Manhattan Island, after the end of the American Revolutionary War. A nice looking example of printed, ephemeral history with a pleasing age patina. Any minor age flaws are easy to forgive and add to its antique aesthetic. Text, images, and/or advertisements on reverse as issued. An elusive image, worthy of display. Provided photos show the front and back of the item, not two discrete prints. Item has a soft width-wise crease which could easily be flattened out and/or would be invisible if  mounted and framed. Mounted and framed, this piece would make an excellent decoration for your home, restaurant, office, classroom, or any other space where people appreciate the vintage aesthetic of antique printed history.
