The Offical Killer Angels Portfolio - Fifth in a Series of Six Limited Edition Prints.
This artwork by renowned historical artist Mort Künstler depicts General Robert E. Lee at Gettysburg. Mort Künstler writes, “Lee in Gettysburg! I was delighted to learn no one had painted it before and saw this as an opportunity to paint the most famous general in the best known town of the Civil War. Lee rode into town the evening of the first day of battle on July 1, 1863 to confer with Gen. Richard Ewell at his headquarters north of town. The troops recognized him as he passed through the square and cheered their commanding general enthusiastically. This was the moment I was looking for. Once I decided to do the painting I looked for buildings in town that were there a hundred and thirty years ago. There are many, but I felt that Lee riding through the square was the most effective scene because all four buildings in my painting are still in Gettysburg and easily recognizable to one who is familiar with the town.” For more, continue reading on the Mort Künstler website.
