    Susan G. Cumbey, Director of Fort Ward Museum and Historic Site, uncovers the life of a renowned American artist. Praised during his own time for rendering “what he has seen and known,” Winslow Homer’s experience as a special artist for Harper’s Weekly  early in the Civil War inspired him to begin painting scenes of army life with a realism paralleled by photographers of the day. While Homer’s finest camp life scenes serve as a pictorial record of the soldier’s experience, his most powerful Civil War paintings reveal deeper meanings which provoke us to ponder the tragedy of war, and allow us to witness the emergence of one of America’s greatest artists.
