The most notable thing about this picture is that it's one of the few remaining records showing part of the now-vanished Missionary Ridge Panorama (Cyclorama) another in the genre from which only the Atlanta and Gettysburg survive in this country. I know of a few others and have visited the one at Waterloo, Belgium; another showing the 1812 Battle of Borodino is in Moscow.

When Life magazine did their Centennial issues way back when they had an excellent painting of the fight at Missionary Ridge, at least as I recall. I never saw it reproduced online.
I think I have a copy of that issue. I grew up with it, and some of the paintings in it are simply fantastic. The storming of Missionary Ridge is one of them. The finest painting in the issue has to be the Battle of the Crater. Anyway, that issue framed my perception of the Civil War from an early age. I have spent hours looking it over the years.
