Artist James E. Taylor was hired by 'Leslie's Illustrated' magazine to cover the movements of Gen. Phillip Sheridan's army in the Shenandoah Valley. The sketchbook that resulted is now an invaluable resource of drawings and writings documenting that campaign. This program will provide a visual and interpretative guide to some of the best stories from Taylor's original sketchbook. A multitude of events, from day-to-day, mundane encounters with the people and places to dramatic stories of combat, to the aftermath of battle, will be highlighted.

This presentation will examine how various factors including population recovery, growing economic stability, an end to Military Reconstruction, and a greater focus on the shared experiences of Union and Confederate veterans sparked the era of postwar reconciliation in the Shenandoah Valley by the early 1880s. It will also explore the role that the Shenandoah Valley's women played in honoring the Confederate dead and how Union veterans who visited the Valley in the 1880s tried to improve their relations with the guardians of Confederate memory in an effort to advance the cause of national healing.
