Historic "View of the University of Virginia, Charlottesville & Monticello. Taken from Lewis Mountain", drawn from nature and print by E. Sachese & Co., published by C. Bohn, Washington, D. C. & Richmond, Virginia in 1856. A charming and detailed illustration of the campus of the University with the town of Charlottesville in the background and Thomas Jefferson's Monticello visible on its mountaintop peak in the distance. Lively carriage and pedestrian traffic is depicted on campus. An outdoor field appears on the south side of the campus, with groups of students involved in gymnastic exercise.
Founded in 1819 by Thomas Jefferson, the university was the first to use the elective course system and was the first nonsectarian university in the United States. This view captures the University as it appeared just five years before the Civil War.
