Work in Progress #research

I wanted to share some more of the research I've been reviewing for my current WIP. Because this is the 150th year anniversary of the Civil War, the Smithsonian has an exhibit of Civil War paintings.  I stumbled upon this exhibit flipping through the channels.  I caught the last half of a broadcast discussing the exhibit and how the paintings were selected.

I think, after watching the documentary, I had a greater appreciation for the exhibit.  A lot of the imagery in the paintings would've been lost on me had I not seen it.

Take a look at the pieces included and let me know what you think. (There's also a book to accompany the exhibit.)
