Oct.8-26, Civil War through Eyes of Thomas Nast

The Civil War through the Eyes of Thomas Nast. Throughout much of October there will be Tours, Workshops, Classes and Demonstrations  at Macculloch Hall Historical Museum. Before radio, TV or the internet, there was political cartoonist Thomas Nast. Nast illustrated battles, Union and Confederate troop movements, and their activities throughout the Civil war. He also captured the poignancy of those back home, who worried about their family members in combat. His work was the main source of information about the war for many people. His illustrations in publications like Harper’s Weekly brought the information about what was happening into the homes of the American public, the way mass media does today. Like all media agents, he not only depicted what was happening but also created propaganda by trying to stir emotions and support for the Union side. Mounted to commemorate the Civil War sesquicentennial (2011-2015), this second floor exhibit will include a number of these stirring images. The exhibit runs through August 2015.
