    This Treasury Section of Fine Arts mural was painted by William Dean Faussett in tempera on gesso in 1939. From contributor Jimmy Emerson, DVM: "It was originally installed in the Augusta PO but now is in storage in the Augusta Museum of Art. It erroneously depicts Oglethorpe's arriving in Augusta by water. He actually arrived over land." The mural had been in storage at the Augusta Museum of Art since 2004, but the mural is currently on public view in the Augusta Museum of History, second floor.
