Published the same year as the Confederacy admitted defeat to Union Forces, this bird's eye perspective depicts New York City at a pivotal point in its history. The bustling port had been a fruitful ground for Union recruiting, and many Irish immigrants found themselves joining the ranks to head south and clash with Confederate forces. The years following the close of the Civil War saw a population boom for the city, and many Europeans made their homes in New York City with the population nearing one million by the end of the decade.
