It’s incredible so that you can see what our Presidents really appeared as if and also to hear the language related to them as though the language originated from the lips from the figures themselves. Our wax museum from the nation’s former executives is finished with beautiful background murals showing the introduction of America, what are work of Charles Morganthaler. Morganthaler is among our country’s truly great contemporary artists and the art may also be seen around the Cylclorama, colored in early 1960’s just before its change from the 1913 building next door, towards the Mission 1966 Building around the battlefield.
Here’s an esteemed museum, masterfully etched in wax, that personifies our nation’s past presidential figures. See our Commanders in Chief themselves telling their very own tales in words and stirring music within this single collection. The boys who symbolized our nation, whoever hands our forbearers entrusted their welfare, in their own individual words and speaking using their own lips tell:
“The Story of the Land.” Here’s your heritage…The Story from the Presidents…as they may have told it… The Storyline of the usa.
