ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
The original "Storming of Missionary Ridge" painting itself no longer exists. Photographer H.H. Bennett documented the cyclorama while it was in Kansas City, and created the only known complete photographic record of it (also in the WHI collection). Interestingly, this detail does not match any of Bennett's photographs, suggesting that it is from a different source. At least one account mentions that more than one version of this cyclorama was created, so it may be from this second version. Photographic copy detail.
