This is great, Mary! I love the romance and grandeur of such statutes.

(AND it makes me wonder when breeches will be back in style for men!....)

Mary, I didn't know what the statue was all about, so I did a Wiki check *blush*

I learned something pretty early this morning :P Great information on the American Revolutionary War. Thanks for sharing :)

Virginia? Interesting angle

Jim said...

Very nice. Old New England has so much history recorded in its statues.

Did you know our country/state had a famous hero (I know, a lot do have famous heroes)?

Sam Houston. He was the first President of Texas. You'd better come down and check on us.

Like it very much, can't give any technical comment (yet) I participate here for the 1st time !

Nice statue

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Nice photo of the Minuteman statue - "one if by land, two if by sea"

For those of you wondering who the Minutemen were - those men who'd be ready in a minute if the British invaded -- just prior to the Revolutionary War in the U.S.

the teach said...

Thanks, EG for explaining who the Minutemen were. It takes someone from Canada to explain a period in U.S. history - the Revolutionary War. Ha! :D

Misty Dawn said...

Awesome! Wonderful angle and composition!

quintarantino said...

Came on by just to say thank you very much on going to my blog to answer that question of mine.
So he was one of the brave who defeated the Red Coats and gave birth to your great country.

Texas Travelers said...

This is a great use of the sky for a backdrop. I really like the photo. The sky is nice but unobtrusive.

This is my first SWF. It is a lot of fun.

Thanks for sharing.

So close and I should've seen that by now. But I will, I must. It's a great statue, isn't it?
