"CivilWar@Smithsonian is produced by the National Portrait Gallery and is dedicated to examining the Civil War through the Smithsonian Institution's extensive and manifold collections." Winslow Homer's Civil War drawings, portraits of leaders, artifacts of soldiering, and, of course, Mathew Brady's portraits. Much more besides. Previous Winslow Homer thread.

This is a good find. Thanks.

(Obligatory link to Museum of the Confederacy)

Good work, thank you.

Some cool stuff here. Picked a lousy news cycle to post it, though ;)
