Title: Passage of U.S. Troops Through Baltimore. (Plate 4).

Description: Print of a battle scene between civilians and Union soldiers. In the background are several buildings, one of which has a sign that reads "SAIL MAKER." There is an anchor on the ground in the foreground which indicates that the battle took place on the city streets near the docks. Handwritten on back: "Passage of US. troops through Baltimore." The lithograph was one of twenty pro-Confederate political cartoons printed by Adalbert J. Volck in 1864 and published under the pseudonym V. Blada as "V. Blada's War Sketches." Alternate titles for this print are "Battle in Baltimore, April 19th, 1861" and "Attack on the Sixth Massachusetts in Baltimore, April, 19, 1861."
