Gettysburg College librarians learned firsthand about the restoration of the gigantic Cyclorama painting at Gettysburg National Military Park.
Musselman Library staff members met with individuals involved in the painstaking three-year restoration process and got a rare behind-the-scenes look at the 19th-century in-the-round painting of Pickett's Charge. During the visit on Jan. 13, 2010, librarians examined the three-dimensional diorama portion of the Cyclorama and were able to crawl behind the painting to examine restoration work up close.
Founded in 1832, Gettysburg College is a highly selective four-year residential college of liberal arts and sciences. With some 2,500 students, it is located on a 200-acre campus adjacent to the Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania.
