Civil War Art
Throughout the Civil War, William Crane worked as a “special artist” for Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper, which published 244 of his drawings.  In addition, under orders from General Quincy A. Gilmore, Crane drew a series of sequential views of Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor in the summer of 1863 depicting the stages of the fort’s demolition during a prolonged Union bombardment.

General Gilmore included these detailed and shocking drawings in his final report to the Wa (showing 500 of 877 characters).
