During the Civil War, the illustrated newspapers hired artists to follow the armies and send back sketches and drawings which were then engraved and published. Local artists in the path of the war also sent drawings to the publishers as did military personnel. Naval officers sent drawings of their ships and the war at sea. The drawings were mailed, carried by paid curriers and entrusted to others traveling north. Speed was paramount. Artists were usually paid by the sketch. Well known and established artists were sometimes given a regular salary and field allowance.
