Maj. Gen. Patrick R. Cleburne leads his Division in the assault upon the earthworks built around Franklin, TN by the Army of Ohio. Cleburne, in his last moments before the attack, would tell Brig. Gen. Daniel C. Govan "Well, Govan, if we are to die, let us die like men." Cleburne would be killed in the attack, shot through the chest after having two horses shot out from under him and cheering his men forward.
The incredible Cyclorama painting at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center was created in the 1880s by French artist Paul Philippoteaux to accurately depict the fury of Pickett’s Charge during the Battle of Gettysburg. This enormous painting has been fully restored by the Gettysburg Foundation and is on display at the Visitor Center. It's a must-see when visiting Gettysburg!
