To The Heights
Painting - Oil On Canvas
This is a view of the Dorchester Heights as seen from Columbia Road. Interesting enough the painting was begun on Patriot's day. Dorchester Heights is where General George Washington ended British colonial rule in Boston! The seizure and fortification of Dorchester Heights in March 1776 was the first real stroke of military success enjoyed by the Continental Army in the War for Independence. Not only were the British forced to evacuate Boston by Gen. George Washington's unexpected move, but this success served also to inspire hope and confidence in the leadership and capabilities of the Continental Army.
