To support a planning grant for the 2013 exhibition Picturing the Home Front: Art & Visual Culture of the Civil War, co-organized by the Terra Foundation for American Art and the Newberry Library. The exhibition will examine the war’s impact on the daily lives of everyday Americans, not through scenes of battle or heroic portraits of officers and soldiers but through images and other materials that relate how ordinary Americans experienced the war from the home front.
