Allen Christian Redwood was a post-war artist and writer. He was a Confederate Veteran of the 55th Virginia and 1st Maryland Infantry. He wrote "Stonewall: Memories From The Ranks", that I believe was republished in 1998. He wrote articles in various magazines and illustrated them in oil and watercolors, and also illustrated articles written by others, for publications such as THE CENTURY and HARPER'S.

Be advised before reading:

"While Redwood expresses his admiration of these soldiers, he does so in terms which today might bring condemnation for racial stereotyping and political incorrectness. In the context of his own day, however, his attitude would have been regarded as far more tolerant and enlightened than that of most Whites, North or South. Also, note that Blackwood does not segregate his subjects as “Black Confederates” simply as Confederates".........."The Late Unpleasantness: A Civil War Blog
