The Offiicial North & South 140th Antietam Cover Commemorative Print "The Calm Before the Storm"
by Ron Lesser

The cover of North & South Magazine is reserved for the work of only the finest Civil War artists. Now for the first time, in commemoration of the 140th anniversary of the Battle at Antietam, the editors at North & South Magazine have commissioned an original oil painting for their cover - "The Calm Before the Storm" by noted artist Ron Lesser.

This original painting, which depicts General "Stonewall" Jackson on the morning of September 5th as he crossed the Potomac, captures this "Legend of the Confederacy" with power, majesty, and superb detail. Only days later, under the command of General Robert E. Lee, General Jackson would be locked in battle with the Army of the Potomac in some of the bloodiest days of the Civil War.

You can own this masterpiece and official 140th North & South Cover Commemorative Print by Ron Lesser in limited editions created directly from the original oil painting. Whichever you choose, each will be personally signed and numbered by the artist.
