This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born 1819 in Brownfield, Maine, Augustus Gibson attended Bowdoin College, graduated from West Point Military Academy in 1839, became a Lieutenant Colonel and fought in the Mexican, Seminole and Civil Wars.  

He was a soldier in the Mexican and Civil Wars and did watercolors of local Northeast landscapes, of the American West where he was posted, and of various other U.S. locations as he traveled with the Army as an officer.  Also, he worked briefly with the U.S. Coastal Survey.

He died in  Fryeburg, Maine in 1893.  

Most of his known paintings have been donated to Boudoin College.

Submitted by Jo Harmon, who is a collector of Gibson's work and is doing biographical research on the artist.
