Description In the winter and spring of 1856/1857, Strother traveled in the southern states to prepare a series of articles and illustrations published as "A Winter in the South," in Harper's Monthly, between September 1857 and December 1858. This drawing may illustrate an incident he observed while visiting a mansion in east Tennessee.
