Lee in Gettysburg! I was delighted to learn no one had painted it before and saw this as an opportunity to paint the most famous general in the best known town of the Civil War.

Lee rode into town the evening of the first day of battle on July 1, 1863 to confer with Gen. Richard Ewell at his headquarters north of town. The troops recognized him as he passed through the square and cheered their commanding general enthusiastically. This was the moment I was looking for.

Once I decided to do the painting I looked for buildings in town that were there a hundred and thirty years ago. There are many, but I felt that Lee riding through the square was the most effective scene because all four buildings in my painting are still in Gettysburg and easily recognizable to one who is familiar with the town.

In the left background is the Wills House, famous as the place where Lincoln stayed the night before giving his Gettysburg Address. The Masonic building that is presently next to the Wills House was not there during the Civil War and the empty space gave me the perfect opportunity to silhouette Lee against the sky. The two buildings to the right of Lee are there today, looking pretty much like they did then. In the far background at the extreme right of the picture is the old Court House, still intact, and easily seen from the square.

I found working on this fifth painting in the official Killer Angels portfolio exciting. I look forward to doing the sixth painting of the portfolio. It will depict Gen. Joshua Chamberlain on Little Round Top and will be released in 1994.
