This photograph depicts a section of the Gettysburg Cyclorama, the famed circular paining of July 3, 1863 and the High Water Mark of the Confederacy.  Image measures 4 3/4 inches by 7 3/4 inches and is mounted on heavy cardstock.  Of artist Paul Philippoteaux’s four versions, only two survive today.  The one now displayed at the Gettysburg Visitor’s Center was completed in 1884 and was originally displayed in Boston from 1884-1891.  Afterwards, sections of it were displayed at various periods in Philadelphia, PA, Washington, DC, Newark, NJ, Baltimore, MD and New York City before arriving in Gettysburg in 1913.  The backside of the photograph is stamped “Allen & Rowell, Photographers, 25 Winter Street, Boston.”

Major General Winfield Scott Hancock, commander of the Union II Corps, is visible at the center, pointing in the direction of the Angle, as Union infantry and artillery reinforcements rush in support.  The Round Tops are visible in the background, Little Round Top partially obscured by smoke from artillery fire.  Clarity is excellent with some light foxing and minor staining along the edges.
