    One of my favorite paintings of any ACW person. I can't find a thing about it that I don't like except the price tag that I can't afford. :smile:

    One thing I'll say for Kunstler...of all the artists who've depicted Little Sorrel, he's probably had the most instances of getting the horse's gait correct. Little Sorrel was a pacer, not a trotter, and I've found at least three Kunstler works..Old Jack's New Uniform, Lee's Lieutenants, and (I think, because it's hard to see) Review at Moss Neck...that show a little red horse pacing.

    Another offering by Mark Churms I just espied on another thread here is titled The Turning Point depicting Jackson's mortal wounding at Chancellorsville:

    Another Chancellorsville-themed print I recently discovered, thanks to @War Horse is titled Fatal Full Moon - Lee & Jackson's Last Council of War painted in 2001 by patriotic artist Tom Gallo. Sorry for the poor quality of the reproduction, but this was the best image showing it I could find online!

    It's interesting that this artist places Jackson and Lee on the same level. Kuntsler's Tactics and Strategy has Jackson looking up at Lee. By the way, I was lucky enough to get John Paul Strain's Jackson Meets Little Sorrel for the cover of my new book Stonewall Jackson's Little Sorrel. The publisher did it somehow and was I lucky!

    That one is my all time favorite. That one is a high dollar print. I really like Rick Reeves also.

    I hope it holds its value - ever since the stock market collapse back in '08 (?) many items in the collector market have been seriously devalued and have yet to regain their previous status. I paid $300 - $350 for this one unframed at The Horse Soldier in Gettysburg back in the early 90's and half as much again to have it framed.

    Do you (or someone else) have a photo that show the legs of the horses in this statue? I presume it's the Baltimore one being threatened with moving.
