The Making of "General Orders 100" - Phase 5

Now that the painting is completed, I feel very pleased with meeting this challenge. Through meticulous research and with a little artistic license, I believe I was able to take a little-known moment in American history and bring it to light in both an accurate and interesting manner. I hope you agree. - Mort Künstler

The JAG LCS Alumni Association wanted Mort to paint this little-known moment in American history to help make the general public aware of one of the most important and influential general orders ever given. Upon seeing the original oil painting, the JAG said: “The painting is stunning. We could not be more pleased.”
