Mort Künstler pays tribute to Mosby and his men #5

The Gray Ghost
Mosby in Warrenton, January 18, 1863



I feel a great sense of satisfaction from this painting, as I was able to combine all of the desired elements into a single image. This includes placing “The Gray Ghost” and his men in front of the Warrenton County Courthouse, on a significant date in their formation, in the beautiful Virginia snow. - Mort Künstler
