Money, Mail, and Memoria: Ephemera of the Civil War Era
Corridor Gallery Columbia Research Center
Many limit discussion of Civil War art to paintings, sculptures, photographs, and fine
prints. This exhibit focuses on popular imagery from more unexpected contexts. Pictures
decorated currency, newspapers, sheet music, books, popular prints, and other media. Much
of this neglected art of the Civil War era helps us better understand the political, social, and
cultural climate of the period.
