The completion of this book would not have been possible without the assistance of many people. My research was aided by the kind help of Cliff Eckle at the Ohio Historical Society, Scott Hartwig at Gettysburg National Battlefield Park, Keith G. Lauer, the Assistant Director of the Atlanta Cyclorama, the archivists at the Atlanta Historical Society, Michael Sherman at the Vermont Historical Society, David Schütz at the Vermont Capitol, the painting curatorial staff at the State Museum of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg, the staff at Antietam National Battlefield Park, and the staff at the National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution. I am especially grateful to Cynthia Babbott, whose personal knowledge of her relative, Charles Hardin Andrus, was invaluable.
The Dr. Ben Shenson Fellowship at the Graduate School and University Center, City University New York provided significant support during my research. Dr. William H. Gerdts gave invaluable support and guidance. Without the encouragement of Dr. Patricia Mainardi, Dr. Katherine Manthorne, Dr. Carrie Rebora, Dr. Harriet Senie and Dr. Sally Webster this project would not have been possible. I am also grateful for the support I received from Kathy Kienholz, Cynthia Sanford, Kathy Doyle, and Gina D'Angelo. Jennifer Miller's encouragement was essential to the completion of this project. Finally, words cannot describe the help and support I have received from my parents, Sarah and Brady Alexander Hughes.
