The Art of War
An exploration of the work of Alfred R. Waud, one of the Civil War's most prolific—and fearless—sketch artists.

As the North turned from enlistment to conscription, a public discussion emerged about the obligations of citizens—to both their country and their families.

Election 1880
The 1880 presidential election pitted former Union generals against each other in a contest in which Civil War issues—and the candidates' military records—resurfaced to take center stage.
