America Remembers® Presents

The Mort Künstler Civil War
Sesquicentennial Tribute
Honoring the 150th Anniversary of the War Between the States with the Artwork of an American Master
One hundred and fifty years ago, our nation was torn by war. Four years of conflict forced state against state, neighbor against neighbor, and brother
against brother. By the end of the Civil War, our once peaceful American landscape would be shattered, but even though the War Between the States tore
us apart, it helped put us back together stronger than ever, creating a true United States of America.
And more than a century after it had ended, one man would recapture it all - Mort Künstler.
Mort Künstler is a critically-acclaimed artist who has become a master at bringing scenes from American history to life. Looking at his
paintings, you can almost hear the thunder of rifles and the clash of swords. You can almost smell the cannon smoke and the burning grass on
the battlefield. Künstler's brush can simultaneously reveal the fear on a soldier's face and the courage in his heart. Almost singlehandedly
over the last three decades, he has changed how we see the Civil War. His talent and passion keeps the heroes of American history alive,
ensuring that they will never be forgotten.
As our nation marks the 150th anniversary of an era that reshaped the country, America Remembers announces the
Mort Künstler Civil War Sesquicentennial Tribute Rifle, issued exclusively by America Remembers.
