As the Eve of the Civil war was marked by several events, the art that was used to illustrate them was also marking the great time before that huge push. The different pieces of media offer different depictions that give us a sense of what those times where really like. Like the picture of Dread Scott, which allows us to see his point of view and his appearance to further gage who he really was. The video below gives us all that benefit as it not only shows the pictures but also a short description to base our judgements off of. The art of the Civil war will be remembered not only for when it was made but for what it represents.
