Pickett’s Charge: Confederate troops braved hundreds of yards of open terrain in an ill-fated attempt to turn the tide on the last day of battle at Gettysburg. French artist Paul Philippoteaux recreated the chaos in a cyclorama called The Battle of Gettysburg, first displayed in Chicago in 1883, a portion of which is shown here.
