Introducing LaGrange vs. LaGrange, Künstler's Final Civil War Release
Here is the beautiful finished painting, LaGrange vs. LaGrange. Thanks to these strong and determined women, the Union army agreed to spare the town and the women agreed to give the soldiers dinner. What an assortment of armed women the 2nd Brig. 1st Div. encountered. Although the women were outgunned and outnumbered, the Colonel complimented them on “their fearless spirit and fine martial air.” What a beautiful painting to finish up Mort’s Civil War career. It’s also fascinating to reflect on the fact that this all took place after the surrender at Appomattox because word had not reached everyone the war was over.
