Martyrs' Market

Martyrs' Market depicts soldiers from the Georgia Army National Guard patrolling the streets of a marketplace, located in the district of Mahmudiya, 20 miles south of Baghdad, Iraq. In 2005, the marketplace was rebuilt as a joint United States and Iraqi effort to help stabilize relations between the Shi'a and Sunni Muslims who comprise the area, after it was largely destroyed during sectarian fighting between the two religious groups. The marketplace was nicknamed "Martyrs' Market".

Martyrs' Market is a National Guard Heritage Painting by military artist Larry Selman. Complimentary prints are available courtesy of the National Guard Bureau.
