3 OVERVIEW: The Cyclorama painting, which illustrates the 1864 Battle of Atlanta, stands 42 feet tall and is 358 feet in circumference. It is said to be the largest painting in the world, and is enhanced by a foreground of threedimensional figures and terrain. The Battle of Atlanta was painted in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in the studios of the American Panorama Company. Company manager William Wehner went to Europe to find artists with the necessary skills. He selected a group of German artists with experience in European cyclorama painting and brought them to Milwaukee. The artists studied the landscape depicted in Cyclorama from a 40-foot wooden tower erected near the intersection of Moreland Avenue and the Georgia Railroad. They correlated landmarks with references made in military maps and official reports of the battle and made oil sketches of many details of the battle area. During their several months of study in the tower, the artists received helpful information and insightful reminiscences from Confederate and Union veterans and residents of the surrounding neighborhood. An interpreter translated for the non-englishspeaking artists. William Wehner placed the Battle of Atlanta on exhibition in Detroit in This was the first of several stops on a tour of large cities that ended in Indianapolis, where the painting was displayed in During the tour it was publicized as "Logan's Great Battle," in reference to General John A. Logan, commander of the Union Army of the Tennessee in the Battle of Atlanta. According to tradition, the painting was originally commissioned to boost Logan's vice presidential candidacy on the ticket with James G. Blaine in But the timing was off by two years, and General Logan, who died in 1886, probably never saw the completed work. Legal difficulties forced Wehner to relinquish ownership of the painting in 1888 to the Miller heirs who owned the land where the painting was housed. The Miller heirs, in turn, sold the painting to Paul Atkinson of Madison, Georgia, in In 1892, The Battle of Atlanta was brought to and exhibited in a building on Edgewood Avenue (between Courtland Ave. and Piedmont Rd.). In 1893 Atkinson sold the painting to H.H. Harrison of Florida. Heavy snowfall that winter caved in the roof of the Edgewood structure and damaged the painting. It was sold at auction in 1893 to Ernest Woodruff. He in turn sold it to George Valentine Gress and Charles Northen, who asked the city to assign space for it in one of the city parks. Atlanta agreed and a frame structure was erected in Grant Park. In 1898, Gress gave the Cyclorama to the city, asking only that the painting be repaired and its wooden building improved. In 1919, an amendment to the Atlanta city charter allowed the city to erect a fireproof building to house the painting and thus ensure its preservation. The current building, designed by Atlanta architect John Francis Downing, was dedicated on October 1, The diorama was added in 1936, providing a three-dimensional foreground that blends seamlessly with the painting. In 1979, the Cyclorama was shut down for a two-year period while the painting was repaired and the museum and theater were updated. It reopened in 1982 with a dynamic new program, rotating seats, surround sound and theater lighting.

4 CYCLORAMA ETIQUETTE: Museums, like libraries, are places of learning, introspection and leisure.

6 GEORGIA PERFORMANCE STANDARDS FOR SOCIAL STUDIES The Georgia Performance Standards for Social Studies were designed to develop informed Georgia citizens who understand the history of the United States and our place in an ever increasing interconnected world. It is essential that students understand their past and how that past influences the present day and the future. To accomplish our goal of informed citizens, it is essential that social studies teachers: 1. Bridge essential understanding about the past to contemporary events. 2. Assist students in understanding the nature of historical inquiry and the role of primary and secondary sources. 3. Encourage the consideration of multiple perspectives on events. 4. Engage students in speculation about the known and unknown motives and actions of historic figures. 5. Integrate the strands of Social Studies. The ever growing body of children s literature that has relevant social studies themes should be incorporated into the Social Studies curriculum. Reading in Social Studies is part of the 25 book standard. In addition, the reading of social studies related books should be an integral part of the elementary reading program. The Social Studies skills identified on the Skills Matrix are to be integrated into the content as appropriate, not taught separately from the content. Skills are introduced in a given year, then developed and mastered over time; and once mastered, they must continue to be refined throughout the student s academic career. Through the use of a varied assessment program, students should be provided with periodic opportunities to engage in inquiry-oriented projects related to social studies. A varied assessment program with multiple types of both formative and summative assessments provides the teacher, the student, and the parent with an understanding of the student s progress and mastery of the Georgia Performance Standards for Social Studies.
