Presentation – Cycloramas

September 15 – Cannon Falls: 7 to 9 pm. Cannon Falls Civil War Roundtable – David Page of Stillwater will speak on Cycloramas. There were dozens after the Civil War with only two left--one at Gettysburg and one in Atlanta. Admission was from 25 to 50 cents with many making a million dollars and more by owning a Cyclorama. Email for more information. Cost: No cost. Location: Northfield Township Hall, MN.

Interesting. I've seen both the Gettysburg and Atlanta cycloramas.

North Korean has a cyclorama at Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum of the destruction of US force in 1950

It underwent a multimillion-dollar restoration from 2004-08–and now hangs as the centerpiece of the cyclorama building at the Museum & Visitor Center.

In the late 60s a little hobby shop in Quebec had a really nice one. From the river level to the Plains of Abraham was about 20". Nice.

I saw the cyclorama at Gettysburg many years ago.
I have the booklet showing the Atlanta cyclorama, which my grandparents brought me (again) many years ago.
My grandfather had been with the 35th Infantry Division at the Meuse-Argonne. The story in the family is that he had a terrible night after seeing the cyclorama: it just brought back too many memories of 1918.
