Abstract
Panoramas provided popular entertainment to the masses before movies, television or radio were even imagined. Large canvas paintings unfurled off of rollers and depicting a story or journey, they provided escape and education to those who witnessed the spectacles. Minard Lewis and Truman C. Bartholomew's panorama of the Battle of Bunker Hill was one of the most thrilling, incorporating sound, chemical and lighting effects with mechanics to create a sense of realism rarely experienced by those who viewed it.
