The Civil War in Art

By Internet Scout Report

The Civil War in Art
Social studies

civil-war-in-artThe Terra Foundation for American Art, in collaboration with a number of partners, has created this collection of interactive exhibits and classroom resources dedicated to artistic portrayals of the American Civil War. Featuring a total of 128 images, including portraits, photographs of sculptures, newspaper illustrations, and paintings, this website highlights how artists have depicted various aspects of the war, from slavery to famous battles to the homefront.

Each image is accompanied by information about the work and its artists, questions for consideration or discussion, and suggestions for further readings. Visitors can browse these works chronologically in the Image Gallery or through a series of themed Exhibits, such as Lincoln, Emancipation and the Meaning of Freedom, and Remembering the Civil War.

Featured works include Samuel J. Miller’s mid-nineteenth century daguerreotype of Frederick Douglass; Winslow Homer’s 1864 On Guard; and Shirley Firestone’s 1864 Harriet Tubman. Instructors can check out detailed lesson plans and classroom activities that utilize this remarkable collection in Classroom Projects.
