Restoration: Adam Cuerden
Battle of Gettysburg
English: L. Prang & Co. print of the painting "Hancock at Gettysburg" by Thure de Thulstrup, showing Pickett's Charge. Restoration by Adam Cuerden.

This is a retouched picture, which means that it has been digitally altered from its original version. Modifications: This image, like many Thulstrup prints, was done on vellum, with a characteristic dappling effect when the light of the LoC's scan reflects off the dimples from the hair pores on the right and left edges. This is a highly distracting effect that required a fair bit of cleanup. Also, levels adjustments, etc..

Medium lithograph: L. Prang & Co. (Boston)
Source/Photographer Original scan: Library of Congress - N.B. The description the LoC gives manages to combine George Pickett (Confederate, leader of the charge) and Winfield Hancock (Union, defended against the charge) into one person, George Hancock. This is, of course, nonsense, and an error has been reported.
