The Coster Avenue Mural in Gettysburg was designed by artist, historian, and Civil War descendant Mark H. Dunkelman, who painted it with the assistance of mural master Johan Bjurman. Dedicated on the 125th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, the mural depicts the clash between Union Colonel Charles R. Coster’s forces (27th Pennsylvania, 134th & 154th New York Regiments) and the Confederates led by Brigadier General Harry Hays & Colonel Isaac Avery.
“I am so glad that I decided to reproduce the mural on glass! I no longer have to worry about deterioration, as I did constantly when the previous two versions done in oil paint on MDO board were exposed to the elements and suffered as a result. It’s a great relief to me to know that the mural is in great shape and will be for years to come.” – Mark H. Dunkelman
