Cartooning Our Modern Santa
The Civil War Round Table will host a presentation on Thomas Nast and the Civil War Santa - Cartooning Our Modern Santa, on Tuesday, December 11th at 7:00 pm in the Administration Building at the Red Mill Museum Village.
Thomas Nast (1840 -1902), a German-born American artist, is considered to be the Father of the American Caricature. He is especially known for creating the modernized image of Santa Claus, a jolly old man with rosy cheeks, a rounded belly, and a warm smile. Nast's editorial cartoons were politically influential and are still relevant today as seen in the popularized image of the donkey symbolizing the Democratic Party.
Please join us for refreshments and the presentation by featured speaker Ryan Hyman, Curator, Macculloch Hall Historical Museum in Morristown, NJ. The admission fee is $3, which is applicable to G.W. Taylor Civil War Round Table Membership.
