The Advance of Freedom through the Artists who were there: Who arrived on the battlefield to claim credit as the first artist to document the carnage- even pausing to sketch a map of the first day’s fight as it progressed? Who then managed to scoop this artist by getting his own illustrations printed in a major newspaper first? Who was the photographer to make the significant leap from battlefield photojournalism to the creation of a masterpiece of fine art? How did he do it?
Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address & the Legacy of the American Civil War. A tribute to those who died at Gettysburg would not die in vain. Lincoln’s promise of a New Birth of Freedom.
