Monday Mural - Hartville, Missouri


I found these two Civil War themed murals in the small town of Hartville, population a little over 600.

This one especially poignant of the a Confederate officer reading the scriptures for some spiritual strength before going into battle?

  2. Amazing how murals present themselves no matter where you are. These pieces have a feel of watercolor. I especially like the feeling of movement in the first mural. Thanks, John for contributing to Monday Mural.
