Many of you know, that the reason I enjoy drawing and painting Western and native American art is for the stories.....I know, I sound like a Country Singer....but really....I do this because I want to make sure I reveal the history behind my paintings. In this particular piece, the 10th Calvary of the Union army was known for their bravery and determination. They were able to protect many western settlers in Native Nation territory.
We took a poll on social media to assign a name to this painting. Here is a list of choices we were able to gather from great patrons of my work. Listed below is a list of the names we received and With Roosevelt in Cuba, 1898 won as the most popular title.
Ready and Straight Ahead, Always There, Sweet Justice, Benevolent Eye, Frontier Justice, We Are Calling, Constant Vigilance, Buffalo Soldier, Meant What I Said, American Son, How The West Was One, Go Ahead, Try Me: Not Today, The Equalizer: Lest You Change the Channels, The Revolution, Black Warrior, With Roosevelt in Cuba, 1898, Protecting My Family, Justice for All, Stalwart Determination, Buffalo Soldier I, Justice, Eyes Speak and Searing Knowledge.
Creating historically correct work is very important to me...
Now, after working on "Frontier Justice" for a while, I found out that some of the uniform, firearm and location was not historically authentic. I was fortunate to find a generous credentialed historian to add their education and expertise to my meager artistic efforts. He made several suggestions that included: (1) changing the color this Buffalo Soldier's hat from blue to tan (2) making his weapon identify as a 1898 Springfield Krag Corbine (3) the location was a sugar cane field during the Spanish American War and (4) the addition of a neckerchief.
My main historical consultant, Henry B. Crawford, shared a photo of his authentic cartridge belt from the Spanish American War.
