"First Minnesota at Gettysburg" painting
I am in the process of working on a large battle scene from the American Civil War, which will travel East to Gettysburg with my dear wife and I in late June as we sign copies of our picture book, "B is for Battle Cry: A Civil War Alphabet" and help commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the battle.
This is an oil on canvas, 30x48 inches, and it shows the depleted ranks of the First Minnesota Regiment charging into the Confederate brigade of Cadmus Wilcox and his 5 regiments of Alabamans in the early evening of July 2, 1863.
Close-up photos of this work in progress, as well as further details will follow . . .
