Part Two is the engaging story of how the mural depicting the brickyard battle on what is now Coster Avenue (named for Colonel Charles R. Coster, commander of the Union Brigade that fought there) came to be. The mural was conceived by Dunkelman and eventually brought to life with the help of numerous people including fellow artist Johan Bjurman. The Coster Avenue mural is a must see for anyone interested in the Battle of Gettysburg and this book is required reading in preparation for that visit.
Mark Dunkelman is a first-class historian who has not received the recognition he deserves. His writing is as good as – and in most instances, better than – any contemporary Civil War historian. Dunkelman’s books Gettysburg’s Unknown Soldier: The Life and Death of Amos Humiston, War’s Relentless Hand: Twelve Stories of Civil War Soldiers, and Marching with Sherman: Through Georgia and the Carolina’s with the 154th New York are informative and enjoyable reads as well as valuable additions to one’s Civil War bookshelf.
This fine volume puts the reader at Coster Avenue during the battle and throughout the development, restoration and current status of the painting.
