Title: Thirts Confederate Civil War Soldiers
Description: Oil on linen study of three Confederate Civil War soldiers drinking from and holding canteens. The painting is the work of one of the German panorama artists active in Milwaukee during the 1880s, probably F.W. Heine. Heine's diaires suggest that the scene, once thought intended for a Gettysburg cyclorama, was more likely meant to depict the Atlanta or Missionary Ridge battles.
