In this online exhibition, students can see a dramatic recreation of how the Travis Panorama would have been presented, using the original narration .Near the end of the Civil War, veterans of the Army of the Cumberland commissioned the artist William D. T. Travis to memorialize the career of General William S. Rosecrans and his campaigns in Kentucky and Tennessee.  Travis produced a huge panorama on a single roll of canvas over 500 feet long.  Today, the original panorama is too fragile for display. The Travis Panorama is part of the online exhibition West Point in the Making of America.
