Illustrated north view of Morris Island [Recto] Fort Sumter National Monument View of Morris Island, noting key points of Union encampment (numbered). Illustrator is believed to be Luis Mathot, member of Les Enfants Perdus (The Lost Children), an independent Union infantry battalion of the New York Zouaves, organized in New York City in 1862. Les Enfants participated in the assault on Battery Wagner in July 1863. Shortly afterward when the confederates evacuated the battery, Union troops, including Les Enfants, set up camp. You can see in incredible detail the encampments of the 54th Massachusetts, 52nd PA, and 104 PA, along with where camp headquarters are, and other defensive positions. Fort Sumter, Fort Sullivan (Fort Moultrie), ironsides, etc., are all also visible.
