This Sunday is Feb. 22. If we were to turn Atlanta’s clock back 123 years to that date in 1892, we’d witness the public presentation of a massive circular painting of the Civil War Battle of Atlanta.  

Georgia State University Associate Professor of history Dr. Clifford Kuhn revisits the event with WABE’s Steve Goss.
