Art historian’s lecture visualizes Civil War
By Katherine Parker

Images of boats serenely floating in the great Pacific quickly changed to dark storm clouds expressing fear, turmoil and conflict as John Wilmerding, American art professor at Princeton University, flipped through a slide show during his talk “Visualizing the Civil War: Three American Artists” at the University of Oklahoma event “Teach-In” on Monday.

OU’s Teach-In is a celebration of and commitment to teaching American history. This year’s event focused on the Civil War and featured lectures from top historians on this crucial period of turmoil in American history.
