Being a Brit I didn't realise that Fort Sumter was the site of the beginning of the American Civil War, makes you think....so I've produced something that might be a sketch for an illustration (Pencils, graphite, approx one and a quarter hours).

I love it when someone adds imagination to a reference photo... GREAT job! It gives the cannon so much more meaning!

Very Cool. I will forward this to my Dad, who is a civil war historian. You really brought this little piece of history to life.

Great sketch + American History Lesson= Great WDE project. Only way to beat a good art project is to learn something new while you're doing it! Great job!

Thanks to everyone for their positive comments. I have been browsing illustrations of the Civil War, so I may develop this sketch.
