The Civil War - A Film by Ken Burns

The Atlanta Cyclorama and Civil War Museum has been a Grant Park institution for nearly 125 years. The 360-degree circular painting known as the Cyclorama is the world’s largest historic oil painting. It depicts the Battle of Atlanta, a pivotal Civil War battle fought in the areas surrounding the park. While preservation of the painting itself is an ongoing concern, the imminent threat facing the Cyclorama is its removal from its historic building and home in Grant Park, which is on the National Register and a part of the Historic Grant Park District.

Artists from the Works Progress Administration created a diorama for the painting in 1936. The diorama provided a three-dimensional foreground to the action depicted in the painting. It blends seamlessly with the painting and adds greater context to the wartime action that occurred surrounding its present home.
