  Riding the Warning bronze by Wayne Hyde


"Riding the Warning" by Wayne Hyde



This particular bronze sculpture by Wayne Hyde was inspired by the history of James Smith and central Pennsylvania's "black boys" of the mid to late 18th century. James Smith was a captive who lived with the Indians for over 10 years, his journals well documented in the book Loudon's Indian Narratives. He was an instrumental leader of the "black boys" group, frontiersmen upset with the government's renewed trade with Native Americans after they had inflicted so much trauma on the frontier during the French and Indian War. These frontiersmen often painted their faces black and dressed as Indians when disrupting supply routes of goods and confiscating items destined for the Indians.

In this piece, you find a frontiersmen racing out, "riding the warning", that supply wagons have been spotted and the time has come for another raid.
