Caption
This is a photograph of a version of the painting "Spirit of '76" by Archibald M. Willard from Bedford, Ohio. The painting is part of the Ohio Historical Society fine art collection. Willard created his first version of the painting for the Centennial Exposition held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1876. He then created several copies, including this one painted ca. 1891. Willard possibly made this copy for the Colombian Exposition of 1892 (AL02758).
