The Undisputed 1864 Civil War Winslow Homer Collection

By the year 1864, Homer's illustrations for Harper's Weekly slowed to a trickle.  After the war he continued to submit illustrations to them, and many of his finest works appeared first in Harper's Weekly.  I do not know why there are such few examples of Homer's work in 1864.  Perhaps there are more "hidden" examples which he did not sign, or perhaps other matters prevented him from completing more work.  If you have ideas, please email me.
