After 135 years of Gettysburg-related artworks, there are still so many scenes that beg to be painted - or painted as I believe they really occurred. With the 135th anniversary of the battle pending, I again visited Gettysburg and the Cashtown Inn. While there, I thought about the events that took place on the road outside the Inn's front door - of all the marching Confederate troops, their officers, and General Lee. I imagined the pageantry and drama of this moment and decided it would make a powerful and memorable picture.
