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.”

This view is looking north along Cemetery Ridge towards the town of Gettysburg.  Union artillery, likely the 1st Rhode Island, pour fire into advancing Confederates.  The details, especially at mid-ground, are sharp.  Minor smudges are visible at the top corners and there is light wear along the edges.  [jc]
