Description

The Minute Man Statue in Concord, MA, is the work of Daniel Chester French, who produced this sculpture from 1871-1875. The statue was unveiled on April 19, 1875 coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the 'shot heard round the world' (be sure to zoom in to the pediment to read the inscription). He was only 22 at the time and had only three years of experience in his craft, and went on to craft the seated Lincoln in Washington DC's Lincoln Memorial and to design the medal awarded to Pulitzer Prize laureates.

See if you can find the sculptors dated 'signature'!

[photo note: 2% short of a perfect score, which is surprising because I thought I did this one totally by the book. I did experiment with a series of shots further out coupled with closer in though.]
