Does anyone have a reliable source for the claim that the Atlanta Cyclorama was commissioned to aid the political fortunes of John Logan? He was nominated for Vice President in 1884; he was already dead for a year by the time the cyclorama opened in Detroit in 1887. It was a commercial venture. It's not implausible that its backers were favorably disposed to Logan, or that they were trying to cash in on his political prominence by featuring him in their painting. But did he commission it?
