The Art of War: The Civil War Sketches of James E. Taylor at the Mosby Heritage Area Association

August 24 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

$60 – $75

As Union forces advanced into the Shenandoah Valley in 1864 they were accompanied by James E. Taylor, a sketch artist working for Leslie’s Illustrated. During his time with Sheridan’s army, Taylor brought the war to life with his detailed sketches that covered all aspects of military life and the surrounding countryside.

Join the Mosby Heritage Area Association for a bus tour that follows in the path of the artist. You will visit some of the locations sketched by Taylor and compare how much these views have changed since 1864. Artists are welcome to bring along a sketch pad and try their hand at recreating these scenes as they appear today!

Bus departs MHAA office at 1461 Atoka Rd., Marshall, VA at 9 a.m.

Lunch included. Seats are limited so reserve your seat today! Get your tickets at
