1846-1901



Julian Scott, Vermont most renowned Civil War artist, was born in this Johnson house in 1846. At the start of the Civil War, when only 15, he enlisted as a fifer in the Third Vermont Regiment. Scott was awarded a Medal of Honor — for rescuing wounded under enemy fire at the Battle of Lee Mills, Virginia. He later studied art under Emanuel Leutze at the National Academy of Design in New York and in 1870 was elected an associate member of the Academy. "The Battle of Cedar Creek," his monumental 1874 painting, was commissioned as a Civil War memorial for the Vermont State House. Scott Civil War and Native American paintings are acclaimed for their authenticity, detail, and democratic viewpoint. He died in Plainfield, New Jersey, in 1901.
