I'm so excited to announce the launch of The Civil War in Art, a project to which I dedicated most of the last year at Smarthistory.


The Civil War in Art is a series of videos, essays, and learning resources that focus on the causes, experiences, and consequences of the U.S. Civil War through the lens of visual and material culture.


I'll link individual essays in future posts, but for now I want to thank the wonderful scholarly advisers and the Terra Foundation for American Art for their generous support of this project. Check it out!

After a long, long time I have finally finished a series of 3 essays on the World's Columbian Exposition. I don't know what possessed me to take on such a huge and challenging topic: the literature on it alone starts to rival the Civil War. Here they are:


The Introduction: https://smarthistory.org/worlds-columbian-exposition-intro/


The White City: https://smarthistory.org/white-city-and-fairgrounds/


The Midway: https://smarthistory.org/worlds-columbian-exposition-midway/

New(ish!) video: I learned so much about printmaking and Civil War-era rifles to make this video! Check it out on Smarthistory.
