Nikolyn, I'll have to look up how old David was when married. Things moved a lot slower back then. This was a really fun project as you can't help but be amazed at how important your roots are to who you are. And the luck that you got here at all.

thank you, AJ for featuring this in "Painted Landscapes".

So your ancestor was only 12 years old when he married? What an incredible story to have in your family history. Beautiful painting depicting the historical events. Thanks for sharing the 'back story' on this one in the "Post a picture and tell a story about it" thread.

Thank you, David.

I have endeavored to be as geographically and historically accurate as possible, while still taking the necessary artistic license to tell the story. At dawn on August 21, 1863, 12 year old David Anderson's life and world changed forever when war came to his home, just outside of Lawrence, Kansas. Although too young to fight in the guerrilla war that became known as "Bleeding Kansas", David was drafted by the local freight man to take over his delivery route, so that the driver could fight in this war of neighbor against neighbor.
