Are you sure? I'm trying to recall seeing one. Maybe an image on one of their new colored plaques.
Unless it is hanging in the dark entrance/exits of the Theater.
It's been hanging there ever since I can remember.
Now, having said that, I was there 2 years ago (having since moved away) and had to ask where it was.....at that time, it was near the exit/entrance to their theater. I commented to the girl that was a cashier, that I hoped the portrait would remain and never be removed, especially after having watched their new movie, supposedly about the battle, but with more of a current "political agenda", in my opinion.....

There are a few prints and items hanging on the along the entrance and at the other side which I call the exit. Further inside, there is a display of a collection of replica belt buckles from every state. But these are not well lighted and can easily be over-looked. That is one reason that I have never taken any photos of any of these artworks.

Oh, this is great! I'm off to a sewing class early this morning so I'll have to dive into it more when I get back home! Awesome!


I briefly looked at frames at Hobby Lobby the other day and for one the size of this print, they were running about $60.00.
Thanks to your print . . . I found mine !

:dance:

It wasn't in the attic or in storage.

I had wrapped it an old quilt and moved it under a bed in a guest room.

:bounce:

But I did that about six years ago and had forgotten all about it.

Two years ago, it hung near the belt buckles that you mentioned. They moved it there from a more prominent position of years gone by.....I don't know if it is still in the museum or not anymore.
Thanks!

I knew you said you had not been there in awhile. Its about time you dropped by. Let me know when you do.

Thanks!
One of these years I will get back down there, don't know when, though!
I have family (cousins) that live in Pleasant Hill, just east of the Fort.
If I ever hit the lottery, I will buy land and build a house down there and move back! I miss it too much! :smile:

Locked & Loaded ?
Loaded with hollow-point conical bullets pushed by 30 grains of Pyrodex Rifle powder.
Photo shows that I could use 5 or 10 more grains of powder.
BTW, conical ball will travel a flatter trajectory than a round ball with a little more powder; less drag than a spherical ball.

Yeah, I understand all of that better than most.

Just wondering what it has to do with a print about Forrest ?

View attachment 314090Hope this is Ok to post. If not please remove! I recently won a silent auction for this print. It is very large and looks to be something that was done for the SUV. Anyone have any additional info?
Opps Edit SCV not SUV.
I have it, too....hanging in the bedroom. But dang! I had to win a silent auction to get it! Way to go....
