‘Spirit of ’76’
This famous painting, in which
the artist caught the spirit of the
patriots who "fifed and drummed
it,” was sketched and later paint
ed by Archibald M. Willard. The
artist, who lived through four of
America’s wars (1836-1918), was
the creator of "Puck” comics aft
er the Civil war. He originally
made a humorous sketch for the
opening of the Centennial exposi
tion at Philadelphia in 1876.
A serious attempt to portray
early American patriotism fol
lowed the cartoon, and the origi
nal now hangs in Abbott Hall li
brary, in Marblehead, Mass.
