"Daring Union Raid Depicted in Scenes on View at Center, by Alan Johnson:

At the Ohio History Center, a Civil War adventure involving a stolen train is wrecking havoc in the heart of the Confederacy. "The Great Locomotive Chase" of 1862 was captured in a panorama of 17 paintings by Albert Ruger, a 19th century draftsman from Akron.  The original first panel of the panorama and reproductions of all the rest, which are too fragile to display, will be on view through December 29 in the Center.  William J.Knight of the 21st Ohio Volunteer Infantry, answered a Union call seeking a locomotive engineer (the STORY OF ANDREWS RAIDERS follows) Years later,William J.Knight traveled throughout Ohio and Indiana, telling the tale of Andrews Raiders for an admission fee of 25 cents (15 cents for students). His visual aids were Ruger's paintings-7x6 foot panels on a roll attached to a wooden frame,which Knight unveiled as he told the story. He donated the paintings to the Historical Society in 1916."
