The Kernstown Battlefield Association presents “Dana R. MacBean – The James E. Taylor Sketchbook: Then & Now”
Dana MacBean is a topographer, cartographer, researcher and historian. He spent 35 years designing museum exhibits and over 20 years researching and documenting The James E. Taylor Sketchbook.
The James E. Taylor Sketchbook was first published by the Morningside Bookshop from the archives of the Western Reserve Historical Society in Cleveland, Ohio. The Sketchbook is a compilation of James Taylor’s writings and drawings as he followed the Union army between August and December 1864.
Dana will compare and contrast photos from the Sketchbook with current photographs taken from the same spots as Taylor’s drawings.
