Drawing Notions of Safety and Security

Over a one-year time span, Amy Lindenberger developed the three panels which when shown together commemorate the life of Judith Henry, first civilian causality of the Civil War.

Judith Henry was the only civilian killed in the First Battle of Manassas.  Her story is the inspiration for this piece.
