Capturing the Essence

Revolutionary War Image

Boston, Massachusetts remembered “The Great Leader”, George Washington by erecting this memorial in 1869. Today George Washington, in uniform on horseback, welcomes comers to Boston’s Public Garden. The statue was created by Thomas Ball, and at that time was the first to portray the “Father of His Country” astride a horse.

The image, George Washington Rode Here, was originally uploaded at Flickr by StarrGazr. It is posted here by barneykin, administrator of “The Revolution flickred” pool.
