A farmer from Dellona, WI, Gaddis enlisted in the army serving for three years between
1861-64.  He had no formal art training but produced several watercolors and drawings
that capture the daily life of a Union army soldier during the 1860s.  All of the paintings
were done "in the field" by Corporal John Gaddis while he was based at Camp Randall
in Wisconsin, and while on military campaigns in Kansas, Mississippi, and Tennessee.
