Civil War Soldier Walking with Rifle

Civil War Soldier Walking with Rifle | Painting | Wisconsin Historical Society
Oil on linen study of a Union Civil War soldier with a rifle.  The painting was created by one of a group of German panorama painters active in Milwaukee during the 1880s.  This study may be by F.W. Heine who donated sixteen preliminary studies to the Wisconsin Historical Society.  Heine's diaries at the Milwaukee Historical Society suggest that the studies once thought to be for a Gettysburg cyclorama were more likely intended for the group's Atlanta or Missionary Ridge cycloramas.
