Painted by James Walker. Engraved by H. B. Hall, Jr. Historically arranged by John B. Bachelder. A fine engraving after James Walkers monumental panoramic painting (7.5 by 20 feet) of Pickett's Charge, entitled "The Repulse of Longstreet's Assault at the Battle of Gettysburg," This view was conceived and commissioned by Colonel John B. Bachelder and painted by James Walker. It was created to dramatically illustrate the battle of Union and Confederate forces on the climactic third day of battle at Gettysburg. Completed in 1870, the painting was commercially exhibited in Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington. After viewing the painting General James Longstreet, wrote that it was a "fair and complete representation of that eventful scene." The battle took place over three days, July 1,2, & 3, 1863. The Union losses under General Meade were 23,190. The Confederate losses under General Lee were 36,000. 18th-19th Century Subjects , Historical , Civil War
