Battle of Guilford Courthouse 1781
This latest Troiani masterwork brings into focus the pivotal battle of Guilford Courthouse, March 15th 1781.  During the crisis of the furious fighting the famed British Foot Guards were embroiled in a close duel with Howard's Mayrlanders.  At the crucial moment William Washington led his force of dragoons through the woods directly into the exposed flank of the Guards who were taken completely by surprise.  The confusion created by this brilliant charge helped to allow the Patriots to disengage and survive to fight again.

Answering Liberty's Call~Here we see a Continental Army officer in the early part of the war bids farewell to his family at their modest homestead as his regiment departs for active service. His wife is presenting him with a silver hilted sword and her wish that he may return soon and safely, although, it may be sometime until they're reunited. As with all Troiani paintings attention to the most trivial historical details (such as the green arsenic dyed ivory grips on the sword) is unrivaled.

DON TROIANI is a soul lost in time; a twenty-first century artist to whom the life of the common soldier of the American Revolution through the Civil War is as familiar and vivid as the surroundings of his Connecticut studio. 
While there are other painters who have turned their attention to historical art, none have done so with the enthusiasm, insight and historical accuracy of this accomplished recorder of drama and detail.
 In the spirit of presenting historical truth through art, 
Don Troiani has personally set uncompromising standards of excellence and authenticity in his field that few others can equal. 
Models are chosen with the greatest care to achieve the proper look of the men in Colonial and Victorian America. The garb and gear of each figure are painstakingly researched. 
Period settings are found and researched, sometimes sending the artist hundreds of miles from home to examine battlefields and structures firsthand. 
Because of the great amount of research that goes into one of his works, it is often years between a painting's conception and the actual moment the brush is put to canvas.  

"You can look at a picture of an artifact for days and still not know it. But examining it in your own hands reveals its texture, its substance and how it works ..."

The Congress of the United States
has caused this Monument to be
erected on the site of the
Battle of Cowpens
as a testimonial to the valor and
in appreciation of the services of
the American Troops on this field in
behalf of The Independence of
their country.
Ninety Six had become a prosperous village by the time the American Revolutionary War came knocking at the door. The first land battle of the war fought in South Carolina took place at Ninety Six in 1775. The village became a Loyalist stronghold early in the war and was fortified by the British in 1780. From May 22 - June 18, 1781, Continental Army Major General Nathanael Greene led 1,000 troops in a siege against the 550 Loyalists in the village. The 28-day siege, the longest of the entire war, centered on an earthen fortification known as Star Fort. Despite having more troops, Greene's patriots were eventually unsuccessful in taking the town.
