Portrait of George Washington; Revolutionary War Poem; Revolutionary War Cannon


Episode Info

A Revolutionary War-themed program features segments on a poem, a cannon and a drawing of George Washington, presumed to be by painter Gilbert Stuart. The poem was signed by a POW named Daniel Goodhue in 1780. The cannon is said to have been stolen by the rebels from the British, who went to retrieve it---from Concord, Mass., on April 19, 1775. And as for the Washington sketch, the fact that Stuart seldom made drawings is only one problem with it.
