SCOPE AND CONTENT: The collection contains material and ephemera of the Civil War and Civil War era events. The collection includes prints, engravings and sketches of Civil War battles originally published in Harper’s Weekly and Frank Leslie’s Illustrated, as well as full volumes of both publications, paper currency, travel brochures for Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley, sheet music, post cards, The New York Herald newspaper and maps of the Winchester-Frederick County area. The primary time period spans 1861-1865, although the majority of this material is reprinted sketches and engravings. Many of the post cards, catalogues and brochures are from the 1930s.

BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL: Geraldine Kiefer is a Shenandoah University Professor of Art History and she is eager to share the sources of her artwork with the Handley Library. Geraldine is a contributing essayist for a book on the Valley Road in Virginia, therefore much of the material contained within the collection contributes to the research of the book. Kiefer also has a keen interest in mapmaking. She has devoted much time to the research of antique maps as well as those of the 19th century. Kiefer is working on an ongoing map series in Iceland.
