Alfred Edward Mathews

Birth: 1831

Death:1874

Alfred Edward Mathews (1831 - 1874) was born in Bristol, England and later became a noted artist of the Civil War for the Union Army and later an important western landscape, portrait and panoramic painter as well as a lithographer. In his western travels, he covered over six-thousand miles, primarily by himself.

According to researcher David Hall who cites a June 1865 poster from the 31st Regiment Company B, Mathews was with this 31st Regiment Company B, Ohio Vol. Infantry, 1st. Brigade, 3rd Division 14th Army Corps. In 1864, he transferred to Co. I April 20 , 1864, but the 31st Regiment Company affiliation likely explains why that Company appears in some of his sketches.
