Eye of the Storm


Imagine being a museum curator who is presented with four tattered scrapbooks. Turning the pages gingerly, you realize that you are looking at a "remarkable collection" of "enormous significance." This website is a beautiful exhibit of Civil War watercolors from those scrapbooks. There are also excerpts from the diary that accompanied the drawings . Excerpts from this diary, along with the watercolors of Civil War scenes and battlefields, provide an excellent source for Civil War study. To add to the romantic mystique of this 19th Century war, students can sift through wrinkled sepia photos of defiant generals and fog encased battlefields. Short videos of the drawings and explanatory narrative add to the interest of this multimedia site.
