The Making of "Heavy Traffic on the Valley Pike"

Last year I received an invitation from the Strasburg 2-5-0 Committee, who informed me that they were hosting the first official event commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War in the state of Virginia. The festivities include a reenactment of my painting on Memorial Day weekend 2011. A replica locomotive was already being built for the occasion and the committee asked if I could do a painting especially for the event. - Mort Künstler
