Notes taken at Boston, Old South Church
Boston 1893 - This original watercolor drawing by Daniel C. Beard depicts various elements of the uniform of a Revolutionary War soldier. The artist made the drawing during a visit to the historic site of the Old South Church in Boston in 1893. Around this time, Beard worked as an illustrator for books by Mark Twain, Ernest Crosby, and others. The drawing includes a blue cloth coat, "an old cocked hat," and a leather cap. Of the latter, Beard notes on the drawing, "I think this cap is of later date than the Revolution. I have seen them in old prints but 1800 & 1810." This original drawing is in very condition with vivid colors and visible pencil sketches. Daniel Carter Beard (1850-1941) was an American illustrator, author, youth leader, and social reformer. In 1905, he founded the Sons of Daniel Boone, a youth organization that taught American frontier traditions and skills to young boys. In 1910, he merged his organization with the Boy Scouts of America and became actively involved in the Scouts and other youth organizations. Watercolor drawing on paper. Signed and dated. Sheet measures 9 3/4" x 7 5/8".
