Drake University is hoping one new set of cartoons helps to cast a fresh perspective on the American Civil War.

Drake University will be holding one of its gallery talks with editorial cartoonist and illustrator, Brian Duffy.  Duffy is a nationally syndicated editorial cartoonist for Harper’s Weekly, where he has drawn many civil war era cartoons for the magazine.

Drake’s Anderson Gallery will also feature some of Duffy’s civil war cartoons in its American Civil War exhibit.

The gallery talk with Brian Duffy will be held on Jan. 9 in the Anderson Gallery.  The talk will start at 7 p.m. and is free to attend.
