      Gaul (1855-1919) is considered among the most accomplished American painter of battle scenes: "The historic accuracy of each detail was studiously sought, and the models who posed as soldiers were fit types. All of these canvases were remarkable for energy of action and, above all, their spirit of belligerency" (Peggy and Harold Samuels, The Encyclopedia of Artists of the American West).
