Adopt, Because You Can Go Home Again
D.C. Fabronious after Trevor McClurg, Home Again, New York: W. Endicott, 1866.
This large lithograph was printed a year after the Civil War had ended. Made after a painting by Pittsburgh-area artist Trevor McClurg, who had trained with Emmanuel Leutze in Dusseldorf, Germany, the print shows an injured Union veteran returning to his home. The sentimental scene would have been very appealing to families in the north who were welcoming back their fathers, sons, and brothers.
