CMSMC Article: Washington Rallying the Troops at Monmouth (1857)

My latest article, “Washington Rallying the Troops at Monmouth: A Window into Nineteenth-Century Domestic Domains,” is published! You can read it on the Coalition of Master’s Scholars on Material Culture’s page here.

In the piece, I explore a network of objects that relate back to this deviation from sacrosanct portrayals of George Washington. 

These objects come from collections at the Monmouth County Historical Association, Brooklyn Museum, UC Berkeley, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Daughters of the American Revolution Museum, and the Stadt Düsseldorf.

Emanuel Leutze’s Washington Rallying the Troops at Monmouth (1857) is an obscure companion piece to his more famous Washington Crossing the Delaware (1851). The former is on view at the Monmouth County Historical Association.

I researched this piece during my Material Culture course in graduate school, and I’m so happy that it is finally published.

As always, let me know what you think!
