Nice to see Sue out of her elaborate Rupp House office to talk about her role as the Museum Coordinator for the Cylcorama project. Too bad the restoration didn't include a presentation that allowed the viewers to SEE all of the Cyclorama. Also too bad the viewers are physically hustled out of the room so the next group of viewers can be herded into the area.

Now that you've finished restoring the Gettysburg Cyclorama, how about hunting down the Shiloh Cyclorama!? If anyone could find it, you could!!!

Too bad I won't ever go to see the Cyclorama again because I refuse to sit through the indoctrination film that is a prerequisite. They've lost most of the audience of repeat viewers that the Cyclorama used to draw because of the offensive propaganda film.
