Scenes from the Battle of Gettysburg painted by the reporter and artist Edwin Forbes (1839–1895), who covered the Union troops for Frank Leslie’s Magazine from 1862 to 1864. Press artists of the time would make quick sketches of the action and finish them in the studio. Some of Forbes’s work illustrates “Did Robert E. Lee Doom Himself at Gettysburg?” in the Summer 2009 issue of MHQ.
