Darley, Alonzo Chappel, Howard Pyle and Frederick C. Yohn. All are known for their historical work and in particular their renditions of the military leaders, battle scenes and memorable events from the American Revolution. These 19th Century illustrations are from a collection curated by Allentown resident Kurt Zwikl.
