Citizen Soldier

citizen-soldier

The actual title of this statue is Minute Man by Daniel Chester French. It is at the Old North Bridge in Concord Massachusetts. The minute men were the local militia who faced off against the British regulars in our Revolutionary War. The soldier pictured here is the epitome of the citizen-soldier with one hand holding his flintlock musket and the other resting on his plow.

    Nice silhouette photo of the statue against the blue sky. Interestingly, French was born where I now live, Exeter NH… and among many sculptures, he may be best known for the sculpture of Lincoln at the Lincoln memorial.
