Winslow Homer 

Winslow Homer began a freelance career after he turned down an offer to join the staff of Harper's Weekly. Harper's sent him to the front lines of the American Civil War (1861-1865), where he sketched battle scenes and camp life, the quiet moments of camp life and human interest as well as the panorama of clashing armies. His initial sketches were of the Potomac River in October,1861. Double-page woodcuts of his illustrations depicting battles and camp scenes appeared in Harpers throughout the war years.
