aSeventeen Men: Portraits of Black Civil War Soldiers
Jul 16, 2021 • 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Lewes Historical Society. Lewes DE
‘Seventeen Men: Portraits of Black Civil War Soldiers’ celebrates the research and artwork of Michigan-based medical illustrator and genealogist Shayne Davidson. Born of a surviving, palm-size 1860s photo album documenting soldiers from the Mid-Atlantic region who served Union Captain William A. Prickitt (now in the collection of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.), ‘Seventeen Men’ once again brings these nearly forgotten figures to almost life scale proportions via Ms. Davidson’s hand. Portraits are accompanied by a scholarly biography that identifies the complexities of each man’s life before, during, and after the Civil War. This is a particularly appropriate exhibition for the Lewes Historical Society, as six of the seventeen soldiers came from this region of Delaware, and without a doubt, walked the streets of Lewes.  Visit https://www.historiclewes.org/programs/exhibitions.html for more details.
