History Mystery quiz: Limited response shows York countians forget our heroes so easily

We appreciate those who responded to this History Mystery question on both the York Daily Record’s and my own Facebook page. But there were so few who tried! This York, Pa., artist’s work has been reproduced in books around the world because of his accurate documentation of 19th-century American life. He was York County’s best-known artist until Jeff Koons came along. But we do forget our people of accomplishment so easily. Perhaps an upcoming book on people he portrayed  will bring his life, times and work back into public view. Meanwhile, please take this quiz and the 5 below. See how you do. Answers can be found via the ‘goo.gl’ links. Also of interest: Check out these past quizzes and (fun) tests and These posts show the work of past York County artists.
