This seminar will explore the history of Civil War-related art, as well as the great rewards and challenges of using visual evidence in historical research and the classroom. Our central text will be the novel online exhibition, “The Civil War in Art: Teaching and Learning through Chicago Collections.” We will examine a range of types of visual material–from photographs and newspaper sketches to paintings, color lithography, and sculpture–created both during and after the war.
