THE BATTLE OP ATLANTA.
Zh» Magnlflorat Panorama of On* of tha
Bitto reit Fights of tho Olvil War on
Exhibition in UlnsaapoIU.
Bow It Zmpronoi She Old Boldlan anA
of Soma ot tia Men who Fought In
There has been recently placed on exhi
bition in Minneapolis in a great circular
building erected for its occupancy a war
panorama depicting tho Battle of Atlanta
The panorama is similar in style and
arrangement to the famous "Battle of
Gettysburg" which has long been on exhi
bition in Chicago. The word panorama
conveys to the mind of one who has not
seen one of. these great pictures, but a
faint idea of .the effect secured by acombi
nation of art and nature. The common
Idea ot a panorama is that of a series of
moving scenes. The modern war panora
ma differs radically from Vhis comiponly
accepted idea. Instead of a series of
views tho spectator is translated by an in
genious device to a point of observation
which enables him to command the entire
field and a wide expanse of country. Tho
huge painting is hung around the walls of
thogreat circular building and the spectator
is practially placed in tho very center
of a greatlandscape8tretchingaway in "At
lanta" to from fifteen to twonty miles in
overy direction. No description which can
bo given of ono of these war paintings can
convoy to. the initiated nnnu any idea of
thoir effect. Ingenious as is the idea it is not
one of American origin. The first-of*these
panoramas was painted In Europe us long
ago as 1810, and now in. every European
city of importance some famous battle
scene is aepicted in one of these war pic
tures. The renewed interest in tho battles
of the late Civil War inspired by Gen.
Grant's book so generally bought and
read, and tho senea ot papers by tho offi
cers in tho late war which havo recently
been published in the Century Magazine
gives additional interest and valuo to the
panoramas of our own war. Tho earlier
pictures had little more value than that of
their impressiveness. Thev were works of
art without historical valjue.
About two years ago Mr. Win. Wehner
who had witnessed the success of somo of
the panoramas placed on exhibition iu
America, conceivod tho idea of preparing
for exhibition in this country a series of
correct paintings which should have both
artistic merit and' positive
With this purj^pe in view he visited all
.the panoramiuFof importance in Europe,
and there selected a staff ot the most com
petent war painters to be found in that
country. This much accomplished, hecom
menced -the erection in Milwaukee ff a
great studio similar in design and slightly
largerin dimensions than the buildings re
quired for the exhibition of these paintings.
The chief of these artists were Professors
pnOFFEBSOU F. W. HEINE.
F. W. Heine and August Lolir, whose pre
vious accomplishments entitled them to
be entrusted with the great task wh:ch had
been laid out. He also elicited the co-op
eration of Mr. Theo. R. Davis who^vas dur
ing all*tho period of the civil ^ar the
war artist for Harper's Weekly, and
who was possessed ot a rare collection ot
sketches of all the principal battles as well
as a marvelous memory of the events and
men, and an acquaintance wide as the
fi£ui which to draw Information not in hiH
owh possession. Mr. Davis became to the
task of painting* irrect historical pictures
of tho famous bwttles of our war, the eyes
by which the things ot tho past were to be
seen. His part in the painting of-Atlanta
has been a conspicuous one—such as prob
ably no other man.living could have play
ed.' The-otaff of painters included, besides
Professors Lohr and Heine, eighteen ot the
best war- painters of Europe, largely from
Munich, Dresden, and Vienna. Among the
artists wero Albert Rich tor, a fambuspaint-

THE ATLANTIC CAMPAIGN.
The great Rebellion is clearly divided in
to characteristic positions. The great up
rising which followed the firing upon
Fort Sumpter was tho response ot tho
citizens to the immediate need of
of tliair government and Hag. Tho earlier
conflicts of the war werefoughtby untrain
ed and unseasoned soldiers. By 1868 reg
iments and commands
had beon many-times
decimated. In 1864 -jgbteran regiments
numbering 225 muskets, followed theirtat
tered battle flag and stood by it with a ten
acity never surpassed and seldom equaled
Tho Atlanta campaign was ended by such
soldiers commanded by officers who had in
many instances came from the ranks ex
changing muskets for the sword. Tho cul
mination of tho Atlanta campaign was a
series of^ battles, the most desperate of
which—that ot the 22d ot July—is known
as the Battle o! Atlanta, among the fivo
distinct battles fought n* the vicinity. Sol
diers and officers who participated in it re
fer to it frequently. Coufederatcs char
acterize it as the bitterest fight
in their experience. The conformation ot
tho battle ground and tlio method of at
tack made the battle close, frequently hand
to hand, and always
desperate. Gen. Sher
inun's army was placcd in position in the
form of a groat "S" reversed. The assault
of Gon. Hood was upon tho eastern lobe ot
this "S," the Army ot the Tenuessee. The
ground occupied by it was broken and
much of it densely woodod, affording cover
for near advance and attack, which invari
ably resulted in the hand to hand fighting
mentioned. Tho foregoing will explain per
haps tho appareJUdifliculty of depicting
this battle'upon canvass in a. manner to
enable tho comperhension ot the extent of
the line and its disposition.
VoteranB, officers -and soldiers, have in
variably expressed their belief that if At
lanta could be painted, a panorama of un
surpassed interest and value would bo the
result. Such a panorama has been paint
ed. In it may be Been great strategy,
military dispositions, topographical
characteristics, and a conflict wh&h equals

shooting then picked
up another squad so that by the time I
heard old Col. Mercey's Dutch profanity, I
had perhaps acouplo of hundred of our boys
busy and Morgan L. and Lightburn and tbe
other officers were doing the same. The
scene shown In the panorama describes
what happened immediately after, better
than I cau tell it. To.me it is simplv won
derful and I feel every old soldier of tho
Army of tbe Tennessee and his friends,
if thoy knew what they would
see, would gladly travel hundreds ot milos
to visit t^o panorama. Sergeant Sweenie
says that one ot his gunners threw himself

ot veterans Jersey men, Wisconsin men,
Ohio and Illinois wero in that brigade of
Col. Sprague's. The attack delivered upon
it by Wheeler's cavalry corps was vigorous
and well sustained. Wheeler, in his report
states.that ho could not, with his cavalryt
dislodge the division of infantry [in fact
there wero not a thousand muskots.] But
Sprague was there and got his well-earned
star thatday. Cloddecks Jersey men would
not down nor fall back until Spraguo with
to toars straining down his cheeks, begged
them for God's sake to do so. Sprague
knew of a cross roads and should he lose
thig regiment as he inevitably must if they
did not fallback, there was every proba
bility of the ultimate destruction of his
command. But Liout. Col. Jerry Rusk
was battling back cliargo and assault and
held the ground until his Wisconsin boys
were joined by the Jersey men. Every man
in Sprague's brigade was a hero that day.

MUGGS AND THE FARMER.
A Talk About Hens Leads to a Cool
ness Between Tliem.
A Rochester man named Muggs has
been out in tho town of Wheatland
visiting- some friends who live on a farm
Mr. Muggs is not only a man of more
than average intelligence, but he is also
of an inquiring mind and-while he was
visiting on the farm he managed to
pick up a great deal of valuable infor
mation by. asking questions about
things. The iirst day that he was there
he went around with the farmer to look
at the stock. $One of the first things
that excited his curiosity was a hen
•that was on a nest under the end of a
"This must be a hen,1' said Itfugga
"It is,1' said the farmer,
"She seems to be taking life pretty
easy,*' ventured Muggs.
"Quite tho contrary," said the farm
er "she .is busy,"
"Laying an egg, probably," suggest
"Probably not," said the farmer
"she is setting."
Then Muggs made some patronizing
remark to the hen and reached down to
stroke the fur on her neck. The hen
was busy, but not too busy to keep an
eye on Muggs, and when his hand came
within reach she pecked a small piece
of skin off from it Muggs took his
hand away with wonderful quickness
and put it into his pocket Then he
stood and contemplated tbe lien in si
lence for several minutes. At length
"I suppose hens Beldom have hydro
"Seldom," said the farmer.
"But when they do have it they have
rt pretty bad, don't they?" inquired
Muggs, with considerable anxiety.
"Oh, you needn't be alarmed," said
the farmer. "The hen is mad, but not
in that #&y. Her fangs are not poisou
"I suppose, now," said Muggs, "that
an industrious, persistent hen like that
will hatch out a chicken every day, and
not feel it."
"There is a difference in bens," said
