07/08 Academic Decathlon Art Selection #9

Mary Cassatt is a favorite artist. Officially a member of the Impressionists, she painted this piece "The Boating Party" in 1893. She loved painting women and children in the theme of mother and child. Now, to tell you the truth, I'm not sure WHY this piece is considered to be a piece of art for the Civil War?!? Can any of you come up with an idea? Seriously!
