Tan Mount. 5.25" X 8.5". This photograph depicts a section of the Gettysburg Cyclorama, the famed circular painting 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.” Mount shows light soiling and corner wear. There is a crease/bend at the lower right corner, with a bit of staining in the same location on the reverse of the mount.

This photograph shows the momentary Confederate penetration at the Angle by Brigadier General Lewis Armistead’s brigade, and the arrival of Union infantry in the counterattack. The Copse of Trees are visible at center, and the Round Tops in the background. At the foreground of the photo are several battlefield relics intended to add a three-dimensional component to the painting. They include a cannon, rifles, and haversacks. The photograph is in excellent condition with sharp detail and minor bowing at center.  [jet/jc/ld]
