The Civil War Seen Through the Eyes of German-American Caricaturists Thomas Nast and Adabert Volck
A traveling exhibition from the German-American Heritage Museum, Washington, DC
German-American soldiers played a critical role in the outcome of the Civil War. Equally important was the work of two German-American caricaturists, who influenced public opinion and the way the conflict has come to be viewed and mythologized. This exhibition features the work of Thomas Nast, illustrator of Harper's Weekly, and Adalbert Volck, Southern sympathizer, caricaturist and spy for the Confederacy.
