About the Artist and his work. Robert Knox SNEDEN [1832-1918] was born in Nova Scotia. At age 18 he moved to New York City. On 1861, Sneden was enlisted in the 40th New York Volunteers Regiment to serve in the US Civil War, and a few months later he got a position as mapmaker, until he was captured. While in prison he made dramatic pencil sketches, hiding them in his shoes or sewed them in his coat and hat. Sneder was able to turn his pencil sketches into watercolors after he was freed on 1864.
We are delighted to offer a great collection of his most important US Civil War maps.
