Winslow Homer Civil War Wood Engravings

Harper's Weekly became exceptionally valuable as the journal of record during the civil war with its many correspondents and graphic artists, including the famous Winslow Homer and A. R. Waud, and a bevy of wood block engravers to quickly translate their work into print so readers could read AND SEE what was happening on the battle front and the home front.
