On February 2, 1863, artists from international news media converged on the town of Madisonville as a Union ship brought a load of Confederate sympathizers from New Orleans. With food short in New Orleans, women, children and the elderly were allowed to leave Union controlled New Orleans to the Confederate friendly north shore. Sketches of the excursion appeared in Harper's Weekly of New York, and the London Times Illustrated in England. This book was released on the 150th anniversary of that occasion which was captured by artists and correspondents who sent their story around the world. Released February 2, 2013 at Madisonville, this book also contains a timeline and gallery of Madisonville during the Civil War.
