I will post some naval pics

The Revenue Cutter Harriet Lane fires a shot across the bow of the United States Mail Steamer NASHVILLE when that merchantman appeared with no colors flying near Charleston, S.C, April 12, 1861. The Harriet Lane is with credited with firing the first naval shot of the Civil War.

The Revenue Cutter Morris prepares to board the passenger ship Benjamin Adams on July 16, 1861. The vessel was carrying 650 Scottish and Irish immigrants from Liverpool to New York. In an era of rapidly increasing immigration to the United States, the Congress passed laws regulating the space allotted to the passengers. The enforcement of these laws was an extremely early example of Coast Guard efforts in Merchant Marine Safety. Acting as the enforcement arm of the Collectors of Customs, the Revenue Cutter Service had responsibility for collection of import and export duties, quarantines, examining vessels for contraband, and in the case of this boarding, some authority for regulating living conditions on passenger ships. When no irregularities were found, the Benjamin Adams was allowed to continue on its way to New York City.

Civil War Series - 'Wizard Of The Saddle'



There were many notable leaders produced by the American Civil War,but perhaps none was more remarkable, nor earned more enduring fame, than Nathan Bedford Forrest. At age forty, he entered Confederate service as a private, and by repeated demonstrations of personal bravery, leadership and audacity, rose to the rank of Lieutenant General. He was considered a brilliant tactician and brought a totally new concept to cavalry warefare. Forrest led a cavalry corps based in West Tennessee and North Missisippi. After Shiloh he began the unique tactic of employing cavalry as mounted foot soldiers using horses to give his men maximum mobility to close in on the enemy for surprise attacks. This innovative idea was used at the battle of Brice's Crossroads, near Tupelo in Northeastern Mississippi, when Forrest's 3,300 dismounted troopers threw back Sturgis 8,000 man force in overwhelming and smashing defeat.In a period when commanders were measured by their ability and willingness personally to lead their men into combat. Forrest won the respect and esteem of his soldiers, the folk at home and his fellow generals.Sherman, who respected few cavalry leaders, wrote in June 1864 that "Forrest is the very devil", and he resolved to hound him "to the death, if it costs 10,000 lives and breaks the Treasury. There will never be peace in Tennessee till Forrest is dead."

Winslow Homer Paintings - Winslow Homer begins as a reporter and draftsman for a newspaper during the American Civil War, before painting landscape scenes he was describing and drawing in a newspaper the daily life of the American people in a way of precision like a naturalist which dominated American painting then. After living for temporarily in Paris in 1859, Homer opened a studio in New York City, and began his painting career, thus working on impressionist pallet, for a while for then finally finds his own style, a style between realism and symbolism. with a special talent for the seascapes. Summer night - 1890 expresses this synthesis perfectly, and can, for this reason, being considered one of the first American Master Work of Art.
