The Making of "The Strangest Race"

I constantly read Civil War books, searching for incidents that will make interesting paintings. While reading JEB Stuart, The Last Cavalier by Burke Davis, I discovered an account of a unique engagement that took place along the Richmond-York Railroad on June 28, 1862. – Mort Künstler
