Fort Sumter Interior Sunrise by Conrad Wise Chapman


After its occupation by the Confederates at the start of the Civil War, Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor was subjected to heavy shelling, and largely destroyed. While stationed in Charleston during the war, Confederate soldier-artist Conrad Wise Chapman made sketches and took notes from which he created a series of paintings depicting Charleston, and particularly the Confederate fortifications. This is one of 31 Chapman paintings in the collections of the American Civil War Museum.
