  5. In 1862, twenty-three-year-old Edwin Forbes joined a corps of artists sent to Virginia to capture scenes of the war that would illustrate the pages of Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper. Forbes and his colleagues did much to shape public perceptions—then and now—of the American Civil War. "An Artist's Story: Civil War Drawings by Edwin Forbes" features more than 120 original pen-and-ink drawings that Forbes produced from wartime sketches to illustrate his book, "Thirty Years After: An Artist’s Story of the Great War."
