- Copyrights: All pictures were taken by amateur photographer Bruce Guthrie (me!) who retains copyright on them. Free for non-commercial use with attribution. See the [Creative Commons] definition of what this means. "Photos (c) Bruce Guthrie" is fine for attribution. (Commercial use folks including AI scrapers can of course contact me.) Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested. Descriptive text, if any, is from a mixture of sources, quite frequently from signs at the location or from official web sites; copyrights, if any, are retained by their original owners.
- Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

The Boston Boys and General Gage, 1775, 1875
Inspired by the 100th anniversary of the American Revolution, this work was first shown at the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Exposition. The painting tells the story of a winter confrontation between General Thomas Gage (1721-1787), the British commander of the occupation of Boston, and an angry group of local children. With sleds in tow, the boys describe how British soldiers have infringed upon their rights by repeatedly breaking up their sledding hills on the Boston Common. Initially amazed at the effrontery of the young Americans, General Gage is shown halting all action with a slight gesture of his hand. He suspected that they had been sent by their rebellious parents, but the boys vehemently denied it. Gage was so impressed that he promised them redress. According to Benson L. Losing's popular History of the United States, which inspired Bacon, the story ends with Gage's statement: "The very children here draw in a love of liberty with the air they breathe."
William W. Corcoran visited the Philadelphia Centennial and purchased several paintings; this one reportedly cost $10,000. In 1886, Mr. Corcoran donated this major historical genre painting to the Preparatory School of the Columbian University, "for the adornment of the general hall of the Preparatory School." In 1898-99, this painting was loaned back to the Corcoran Gallery of Art, while the Law School was undergoing expansion.
