Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site Gallery
Historian David McCullough made several trips to the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site in Cornish New Hampshire to do extensive research for his book, "The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris."
The book talks about the variety of American artists, doctors, writers, other people who went to Paris as a kind of a magnet of culture and the arts, from the early part of the 19th century up into the turn of the 20th century. McCullough returned because of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the great sculptor, who really epitomized not only the Civil War but American's move into the Gilded Age as well.
VPR's Betty Smith was there as McCullough talked about the sculpter and she took these photos
