Antebellum Turf Times is pleased to announce that its article on the master of antebellum equine art is now available for reading in the January/February 2015 issue of American Racehorse magazine! See page 26 of the online issue. In addition to extending our appreciation to American Racehorse, we’d like to thank the National Sporting Library & Museum in Middleburg, Virginia, where our editor visited last October to view the exhibitions that are highlighted in the article.
There’s still time to catch the exhibitions—Edward Troye and His Biographers: The Archives of Harry Worcester Smith and Alexander Mackay-Smith is on view until February 22, while Faithfulness to Nature: Paintings by Edward Troye closes on March 29th.
For those of you interested in the inscription on the memorial monument in the photo, the text reads:
In memory of
The one and one half million horses and mules
Of the Confederate and Union armies who were killed
Were wounded or died from disease in the Civil War
Many perished within twenty miles of Middleburg
In the Battles of Aldie, Middleburg and Upperville
In June of 1863
Thanks for reading!
