When in Atlanta, visit the recently restored Cylclorama at the Atlanta History Center. This depiction of the Battle of Atlanta was created in the 1880s to celebrate the Union and traveled around the North to entertain. But when it's tour ran out, it moved South where it was "reimagined" by literally painting over gray uniforms of retreating Confederates with Yankees in blue. A brief sound and light show points out the changing interpretations of history. I saw it a couple of years ago with some local friends who well remembered how it was displayed back in the 1950s.
