Welcome to EverythingCroton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EverythingCroton.
PART EIGHT - YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL FIND AT THE CROTON HISTORICAL SOCIETY: "THE AMERICAN SOLDIER 1918-1965", a circa 1960's collection of full-color reproductions of paintings from the Office of the Chief of Military History.
H. Charles McBarron, dean of American military artists was commissioned to create the series depicting American fighting men at various periods in our country's history. No effort had been spared to ensure that uniforms, arms, and equipment were portrayed with accuracy.
Enjoy Part One of the Scans below, starting with WWI, 1918 and ending with 1965. Please remember that these paintings are a product of the times. As always, many thanks to the Croton Historical Society. Click on the photos.
Once again a great piece from the society's archives. Many thanks to them and you for sharing.ReplyDelete
