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.”

In this view, Union artillery reserves ride at a full gallop to reinforce the Union center at the High Water Mark.  The edge of the Bryan Farm outbuildings and notable “haystack” connect to the adjoining scene in the Cyclorama.  Details are very good across the mid ground and foreground, with light fading along the horizon.  There is minor wear along the edges; overall a fine condition photograph.   [jc]
