The Raleigh Tavern

This illustration of Raleigh Tavern appeared in Scribner’s Monthly, Volume XI, No.1, November 1875. It may have been based on a sketch drawn by Benson Lossing in 1848 and published in his book A Pictorial Field Book of the American Revolution, although the compositions of the images are slightly different. This image depicts the tavern as it would have looked before it was destroyed by a fire in 1859.
