Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. 

- President Abraham Lincoln, The Gettysburg Address

I am beginning a new chapter in my life as an artist. This wiki will be devoted to my drawings of individual men and women that played a roll in the terrible Civil War in the United States in the 1860's. My plan is to create one new drawing per week for a year (50 - 52 drawings in all).

I do ask that you respect this wiki because it holds much personal value, not only for the artwork, but also as a memorial to those brave souls that fought, both the North and the South. Trash-talking will not be tolerated and will be immediately reported.
A music list that I compiled for this wiki. Much of it comes from The Civil War - A Film by Ken Burns.
