As Union forced advanced into the Shenandoah Valley in 1864 they were accompanied by James E. Taylor, a sketch artist working for Leslie’s Illustrated. During his time with Sheridan’s army, Taylor brought the war to life with his detailed sketches that covered all aspects of military life and the surrounding countryside.
Join us for a bus tour that follows in the path of the artist. We will visit some of the locations sketched by Taylor and compare how much these views have changed since 1864. Artists are welcome to bring along a sketch pad and try their hand at recreating these scenes as they appear today!
