No better time than Veterans Day during the sesquicentennial of the Civil War to learn the story of Henry Mosler. We have just launched a new website dedicated to Mosler, who was an artist correspondent and volunteer aide-de-camp with the army of Ohio from 1861-1863. You can see a timeline of his life, a map of his travels, or read his diary in which he documents skirmishes, long marches, and the occasional sighting of “beautifull” nuns.
