I am spending the weekend with the Waud brothers.
Next week, maybe Thomas Nast, and the week after that, Mr. Winslow Homer. Then I will be looking South for their Confederate counterparts.
At some point I will be weekending with Paul Philippoteaux, of Gettysburg Cyclorama fame.
It was these brave man who were pioneers in the then-quickly expanding field of war correspondent. They are an amazing group, collectively--and even more amazing individually.
Now, of course, we have I-reporters . . .
