Renowned military artist, Larry Selman, painted “Saluting Washington” to depict the Philadelphia Associator Commands’ salute to the newly appointed commander of the Continental Army, which took place on June 21, 1775, on Philadelphia’s City Green.  The painting drew on meticulous research, including contemporary accounts of the event.  Washington’s Review of the Pennsylvania troops marked a significant milestone in Pennsylvania’s military heritage.  Click here to  read more of the details about the painting. 

 “Saluting Washington” was unveiled as an almost complete work-in-progress on December 6, 2014, at ceremonies marking the 267th birthday of the Pennsylvania National Guard.
