: During the centuries US Civil War what artist prints
: depicted the 47 Ronin and what characters did he use to sign
: his name. Thanks, matt durbahn

Sorry, but I don't understand the relation between the print series and the US Civil War.

Lots of Japanese ukiyo-e artists have designed print series based upon the story of the 47 rônin or the Chûshingura play. A number of these series were described by Basil Stewart in his A Guide to Japanese Prints and Their Subject Matter (New York 1922, reprinted 1979).
