As a civil war historian, I can say that this is the most beautiful sketches I have seen. The midst of the civil war was a terrible place to be, the men dying, and murdered. But they fought and since have been honored to be a Yankee or Rebel. I already imagine the pain of being shot in battle, but the real pain was the realization of your family in the news that you are dead. My spirits soar for the reason you have made this picture. Glory Glory Hallelujah and beyond! In the good grace of the Union! Hallelujah!
I went to a Civil War reenactment a few months ago and didn't think I was going to do anything with the images...but this gave me inspiration to pull them out and play with them.....I absolutely love all your work! All is inspirational but I think this one is the only one is the o only one I feel comfortable attempting at my skill level.....practice practice practice and you are at the top of my list of artists! Totally awesome...
