GRANT AND HIS GENERALS. This painting, authorized by President Lincoln in 1864, of the 27 leading Union generals of the Civil War was made in 1864-1865 by the celebrated Norwegian artist, Ole Peter Hansen Balling, who served as colonel in the Union Army. All these portraits were made from life. The original painting 10x16 feet was exhibited in New York City in 1866 and there received the written approval and admiration of the generals themselves. It now hangs in the National Museum at Washington.
