The Civil War Seen Through the Eyes of German-American Caricaturists Thomas Nast and Adalbert Volck

Saturday, March 29, 2014 more dates through March 29, 2014

Central Library, Main Hall 400 Cathedral Street, Baltimore, MD 21201

German-American soldiers played a critical role in the outcome of the Civil War. Equally important was the work of two German-American caricaturists, who influenced public opinion and the way the conflict has come to be viewed and mythologized. This exhibition features the work of Thomas Nast, illustrator of Harper's Weekly, and Adalbert Volck, Southern sympathizer, caricaturist and spy for the Confederacy.
