The Alumni College event, which focused on Bowdoin's involvement in the post-war years, included lectures by Bowdoin faculty and alumni. Artists reacted to the Civil War in myriad ways. In the North some like Winslow Homer ventured to the front lines, creating paintings and sketches that recorded life in the Union army. Photographers followed as well, and their cameras brought to national attention scenes previously unimagined. In these visual presentations, Frank Goodyear, co-director of the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, focuses on the photographs of Abraham Lincoln taken before and throughout the war, while Associate Professor of Art History Emerita Linda Docherty uses Bowdoin's extensive collection of Homer prints to show the impact of one of America's most beloved artists.
