  • Vintage: circa 1970’s.
  • Details:  These are a great piece of American history!  Featuring two of John Trumbull’s historic paintings during the Revolutionary War (April 19, 1775 – September 3, 1783).  One is titled: Battle of Bunker’s Hill completed in John Trumbull made these paintings years later, The Surrender of Cornwallis was completed in 1820,  and Battle of Bunker’s Hill in 1786.  We believe these tiles were made by Mid-State Tile in the 1970’s but we’ve been unable to confirm. They are wonderfully framed in a solid wood frame with a decorative hook for hanging. Perfect for a history teacher or collector of American history. Nice touch in a Colonial styled home.

The American Revolutionary War started on April 19, 1775, with the exchange of gunfire at Lexington and Concord in Massachusetts, it officially ended on September 3, 1783, with the signing of the Treaty of Paris. John Trumbull spent the early part of the war as a soldier, he served as an aide to George Washington and was actual witness to the Battle of Bunker’s Hill.  In the painting by the same tile, he was in the colonial army camp at Roxbury, Massachusetts on June 17, 1775, the day of the Battle of Bunker Hill.  That’s the day when General Joseph Warren, a Massachusetts politician and member of the colony’s Committee of Safety, was shot and killed by the British.  The other painting titled, “The Surrender of Lord Cornwallis” is based on the events of that day, October 19, 1781. In Yorktown, Virginia, British Lieutenant General Lord Cornwallis surrendered to combined American and French forces, which ended the Siege of Yorktown. After spending time in England, Trumbull returned to New York City in 1789, there he made sketches and envisioned his paintings.  In 1791 he traveled to Yorktown, Virginia, where he sketched the landscape of the surrender site.  John Trumbull died in 1843.
