My Great-Great Grandfather
Sandy Bowes (09/08/2008)
I am greatful to sites like this, that let people know of the courages work my great-great grandfather & his brother-William-did by getting so close to the fighting to get sketches that showed the severity & sadness of the war.I was upset when I traveled 3 hrs. to visit a beautiful, new Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, Pa, only to find they never heard of Alfred or William Waud. It took 2 hrs. to tour the museum, see all the art work, wax figures, artifacts, etc. A wonderful display of both the North & South, but not one mention of two very famous, important people of that time in History. The art they did was all some people had to depict the devastation of a war, that was instrumental in carving a major path in our history. Thank you, Sandy Bowes
