The highlights of The State Museum of Pennsylvania’s Civil War Gallery are the paintings of the Battle of Gettysburg by artist Peter Frederick Rothermel. At the conclusion of the Civil War, the Pennsylvania legislature commissioned Rothermel to execute paintings that would commemorate Pennsylvania’s role in the Battle of Gettysburg. Completed in 1870, Rothermel’s monumental Pickett’s Charge, at left, depicts the climactic conclusion of the battle when the Union line turned back a determined Confederate assault. The painting is the largest battle scene on a single canvas in North America. Rothermel was also commissioned to produce four smaller paintings of other scenes from the battle which are also seen in this panorama.
