With a long, diverse career as an illustrator, especially of Civil War subjects, Theodore Davis, known as Theo, is said to have "covered more areas of the fighting than any other artist." His work was highly detailed in documenting people and places, and much of it resulted from hurried notes he took during battles. He was wounded twice and had his horse shot out from under him.

In his Civil War reporting, he worked for Harper's, but traveled with William H. Russell, a neutral British jou (showing 500 of 2727 characters).
