The American soldier during the American Revolution time period was depicted as heroic. All the patriot artist of the time glorified anyone who served in the fight for independence against the

British. The time of the birth of this great nation it was very important to get everyone on the bandwagon against the British. In literature Thomas Paine wrote "common sense" in a effort to opens

the colonists eyes to what the British where doing. The same way artist of the time helped the war effort by portraying these soldiers as heroic. Artists like H.A. Ogden Painted art work of American

soldiers at their best. Emanuel Leutze's painting of Washington is so well known even today. Leutze's painted General George Washington crossing the Delaware and many believe this painting if

far from the reality of the crossing. In the painting Washington and his men have all the focus of the light fading through the clouds but in reality they crossed during the night time and there was no

light. There are diary accounts which tell us that even though there was a full moon that night it was covered by the clouds. This makes it obvious that the artist was either ignorant of the facts or

was intentionally trying to glorify Washington and his troops.
