The Art of the Civil War
While the details of the Civil War in New Mexico are not very well known, even within our state, the fact that a considerable body of art on that same subject exists is even less well known. This presentation by local historian John Taylor, who has written two books on the Civil War in New Mexico, will feature this art with explanations of how the sketches, drawings, and paintings relate to the battles that took place here in 1862.
