Troops by the Hundreds
Were Passing
N.C. Wyeth





Coaster features an image of an oil painting by N.C. Wyeth, entitled “Troops by the Hundred Were Passing.” It appeared as an illustration in a book about the American Civil War, “Sally Castleton, Southerner,” by Crittenden Marriott, and also as a feature in “Everybody’s Magazine” in 1912. Wyeth, a close friend of Chris Sanderson,  gave the painting as a gift to Chris’s mother, Hanna. It hangs on the wall in the Battlefield Room of the Christian Sanderson Museum.
