    Here is something a little different-I put this then and now together using Generals Longstreet and Hood from Dale Gallon's great print, "Hood's Protest" shown in insert. I placed the generals into a modern photo I had taken of the same scene as Gardner's print to add a bit of realism.

    Like the technique of showing that stone house in both images as a landmark.

    You did a good job of that. It brings the "now" photo to life.

    Excellent Greg!

    I can hear Hood ... " ... the ground is strewn with rocks and boulders..."

    Awesome picture. You can almost hear Gen. Hood pleading to "go around to the right."
