“History is messy, but it has a lot to teach us—if we let it,” said Sheffield Hale, president and chief executive officer of the Atlanta History Center in a news release. “What makes #Cyclorama: The Big Picture cool is the surprise factor of the painting’s history— the ‘how and why’ it was created, and its various interpretations over time." WABE

That story includes the different ways the piece has been interpreted by owners in the north and the south over the course of more than 100....
