Great Moments in History (Vol. 1)

Colonel Sanders crosses the Delaware


Little-known to most historians, “Colonel” Harland Sanders crossed the Delaware on December 25, 1776 just after George Washington’s boat. For his help in feeding the troops and giving free coffee refills during the brutal winter of 1776 he was made an “Honorary Colonel”. After the war, the Second Continental Congress awarded him the first fried chicken franchise in the new colonies.


Yes, I know It's hastily done and pretty silly, but after several months of no photoshop time, I was just dying to have a little Friday photoshop fun. The original oil painting was done by Emanuel Leutze in 1851.
