Chapter 21 of Magician’s Misfortune


“SNAFU” originated in the military, so a picture of a military SNAFU seemed appropriate. This is “The Charge of the Light Brigade” by Richard Caton Woodville, Jr. (1856-1927) who’s family’s life has its own SNAFU moments. Although famous and successful as a battlefield artist, Woodville committed suicide by shooting himself. Sadly, he may have taken after his father RCW, Sr., another noted artist, who died of a morphine overdose at age 30.
