Sentinel at North Bridge

Unless you live in the northeast,

The Revolutionary War can be kind of abstract.

Can you guess Daniel Chester French's
other most famous sculpture?
Even if you live in the northeast it can be abstract ...

Because it happened so long ago.


What struck me about this statue at Minute Man National Historical Park in Concord, Massachusetts wasn’t its size, or even the setting – although it’s worth noting that the Concord River flows in eye shot from it – but what he's holding in each hand: a muzzle in his right and in his left a plow.

None of the revolutionaries were full-time soldiers, at least not at first.

Answer: The Lincoln Memorial
in Washington D.C.
Thank you to all those who served.

Happy Veteran's Day.
