Bill Finch is an old friend of mine whom I have known for
many years and for this reason I was delighted to know that
his firm has been retained by you to plan and make recommendations for the building to house the Cyclorama Battle Painting.
l
In this letter I have proposed and described the need for an
Orientation Room which will serve to prepare the visitor and
put his mind in a historic framework to better understand the
Painting when he sees it. With this background, the visitor
will riot think of the battle action on the Paintin~ consciously,
or sub-consciousl.Y,, as an isolated episode of the War Between _
the States, but rather as an integrated and dramatic development of Sherman's March to the Sea. The significance of this
battle can stand on its own feet, but when placed in a running
context of Sherman's Campaign, the visitor will have a far ·
better understanding and ~omprehension of it.
I am utterly delighted and pleased that steps are undertaken
to get the project started for a beautiful and efficient new
home for this rarest of Paintings.
If I can be of any help in an advisory capacity, I will be most
honored and pleased to serve.
Cordi ally,
WL,11.~
