Oil on linen study of a Confederate Civil War sharpshooter aiming his rifle, created as a preliminary study for a Civil War cyclorama. Although unsigned the study is probably by F.W. Heine. Previously thought to be studies for a Gettysburg cyclorama, they are now thought to be depictions for the cycloramas of battles of Atlanta and Missionary Ridge.
