Pleasant Hill, Missouri New Deal Art

In 1939, an oil on canvas mural entitled “Back Home: April 1865″ done by Tom Lea was installed in the Pleasant Hill, Missouri US Post Office.

The artist, Tom Lea, captured the devastation brought down upon the Missouri countryside by the Civil War and its citizens who faced the grim task of rebuilding their lives after the War.
