Absolution Before Victory Irish Brigade by Mort Kunstler Signature edition
Absolution Before Victory Irish Brigade at Antietam, Sept. 17, 1862 by Mort Kunstler is a limited edition giclee Signature Edition canvas size 14″ x 29″ limited to 50 s/n canvases. Many historians consider the performance under fire of the Irish Brigade to be extraordinary and some even argue that it was the bravest division of the entire Union Army. As a testament to its sacrifice, the 2nd Corps lost more men during the Civil War than any other unit in the Federal army. A large percentage of that number was left on the fields following the Battle of Antietam in Sharpsburg, Maryland.
The artist has depicted the Brigade, with their beloved commander, General Thomas Meagher, and Father William Corby, riding along the line offering a hasty absolution. Father Corby was also at the battles of Fredericksburg and Gettysburg and offered spiritual strength through absolution.
The image is also available in a limited edition print size 14 5/8″ x 30″ limited to 350 s/n prints. Email or call 719 260 1873.
