On February 22, 2019, Atlanta History Center opened Cyclorama: The Big Picture, featuring the fully restored cyclorama painting, The Battle of Atlanta. At the centerpiece of this new multi-media experience is a 132-year-old hand-painted work of art that stands 49 feet tall, is longer than a football field, and weighs 10,000 pounds. This painting is one of only two cycloramas in the United States—the other being the Battle of Gettysburg cyclorama —making Atlanta home to one of America’s largest historic treasures.
We will have a 3rd pick-up on at The Harold R. Banke Justice Center/Courthouse, 9151 Tara Blvd. following Sun City Peachtree for this trip - a convenient spot for those coming from Fayetteville and Peachtree City.
