2008 Mort Künstler Collectible Ornament
Confederate Crossing

This beautiful ornament features Mort Künstler's painting Confederate Crossing. It depicts a day, November 28, 1864, when General Nathan Bedford Forrest led the Confederate advance which forded the Duck River near Spring Hill, TN. They moved their horses through the icy river, looking for battle against Federal troops. Although unable to affect the campaign's outcome, Forrest and his Confederate cavalry again set the standard for bold and courageous action. They aggressively engaged the Northern forces before them -- driving back the Northern cavalry, pressing the Federal infantry, and attacking Northern supply trains.

From the school:

Timber Ridge School proudly presents limited edition Christmas ornaments featuring the artwork of renowned Civil War artist Mr. Mort Künstler. Mr. Künstler has been a very generous supporter of the School by donating the use of a piece of his artwork for fourteen of our fifteen ornaments. His tremendous support of our program was recognized in March of 2003 with the dedication of the Mort Künstler Residence Hall.

All proceeds from the sale of ornaments are earmarked for the improvement of campus programs and facilities. Timber Ridge School is a licensed residential treatment and accredited educational program serving young men with a history of serious emotional, learning, and behavioral difficulties.
