The American Civil War is typically regarded as the first major world battle that was 'observed' by the general population while it occurred. It was through the work of Civil War artists and photographers that the people of the United States and Europe were given their images of the war.
During the Civil War there were more than 10,000 terrible armed conflicts between the North and South and many prints and paintings depict particular battles. During the War, however, few artists actually drew battle scenes. Many sketched scenes of camp and quiet moments in the soldiers' army life, as few artists were close enough to see the sheer terror that soldiers experienced in battle.
Among the many highly recognized artists who have created works based on the Civil War are Conrad Wise Chapman (1842-1913), Edward Lamson Henry (1841-1919), Winslow Homer (1836-1910), James Hope (1818-1892), Eastman Johnson ((1824-1906), Theodore Kaufmann (1814-1896) Thomas Nast (1840-1902), Augustus Saint-Gaudens (1848-1907), and William Aiken Walker (1838-1921).
