About the Art:The Shenandoah Valley. May 8th 1862. Jedediah Hotchkiss, 'Stonewall' Jackson's cartographer, has led the general to the spur of Sitlington's Hill to show him the deployment of the Union's infantry. The men look down over the town of McDowell, which is crowded with Feds. Shortly, McDowell is to become a small victory for Jackson - a victory that was desperately needed by the South.
BRADLEY SCHMEHL Bradley Schmehl is an artist with a love of history and a passion for the Civil War. Ideas for paintings come to the artist through reading history books, the diaries and letters of soldiers, visiting battlefields and historical sites -- and most importantly, talking and exchanging ideas and information with the many interested and interesting people who share his sense of history. Each of his paintings requires extensive research. He begins with a rough pencil sketch, usually done on location of the actual site or battlefield. Models are engaged to pose as various characters in the picture, then photographed. Once Schmehl is satisfied that his concept is historically accurate, he begins the actual painting process.
