Blacks in the United States Army: Portraits Through History
Martha S. Putney
McFarland, Jan 1, 2003 - Social Science - 150 pages
Pictures can tell a story and portray history in a unique manner. They provide ways of communicating that words cannot. This collection of paintings, drawings and sketches shows how well illustration can chronicle the past. They depict black army personnel at war, as war casualties, at prayer, in peacetime assignments, in training, at play and at leisure, and as military musicians.
From the Revolutionary War to the Persian Gulf War, this reference work is arranged chronologically. Information about the artwork include the title, the time period represented, the artist's name, the year the piece was produced, the size and medium used, and where the original can be found is supplied for each artwork. A narrative accompanies each. Sections are concluded with a list of Congressional Medal of Honor Recipients from the war being portrayed. An appendix provides profiles of the artists whose work is represented.
