Biography Samuel Woodson Price
SAMUEL WOODSON PRICE (1828-1918)
Samuel Woodson Price was born in 1828 near Nicholasville, Kentucky. A portrait artist early in his career, commissions kept him employed until he left to study in New York City at the Art School of Design when he was twenty-one.
Price entered the United States Army at the outbreak of the Civil War and achieved the rank of Colonel. His brigade became a part of the Army of the Cumberland and he fought in the Battle of Missionary Ridge before being wounded at Kennesaw Mountain. The almost fatal injury took Price off the front lines and he was given a post job in Lexington. Congress awarded him the rank Brevet Brigadier General in 1865 for meritorious service at Kennesaw.
