He mostly captured the scenes of war and after the war; he continued to contribute sketches documenting American life. These he contributed to Harper’s company and they depicted scenes in locales such as the South in the Reconstruction era and the western frontier. He worked mainly as a freelance illustrator, and managed to contribute art to a number of publications, including the esteemed, plentifully illustrated Picturesque America which was edited by Cullen William Bryant. He was an illustrator and he died in 1891 in Marietta, Georgia aged 62. His detailed and lively sketches of scenes from the Civil War captured the dramatic intensity of the war and furnished him with a reputation as one of the leading artist-journalists of his time.
