Description:

Dr. Louis Knowlton, shown in his doctor's buggy en route to treat a patient, was a Civil War veteran with a bullet wound in his leg that never healed. It is said that he used to treat the unhealed wound with whisky everyday. In his final years, Knowlton lived in the Stage Coach Inn in Brecksville, a place which is also shown in this exhibition. Wilcox likely painted this scene from his memory.
