This poster commemorates An Evening With Mort Künstler which was presented by the Booth Western Art Museum near Atlanta. This evening took place exactly 139 years after the scene depicted. Mr. Künstler signed and dated the poster on November 15, 2003.

General William Tecumseh Sherman occupied Atlanta and forcibly evacuated the city’s residents. He destroyed key military, rail and industrial sites with a blaze that gutted much of Atlanta. Then he led his 62,000 troops on the March to the Sea, cutting a 60-mile-wide swath of destruction across the state with a campaign designed to “make Georgia howl” and bring despair and demoralization to the Southern heartland.
