The oldest garden in America, Kosciuszko's Garden can still be seen today by visitors to the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY.  This painting reflects the original topography of the time that Kosciuszko worked there.  Notes about the garden from a contemporary observer Dr. James Thatcher are included in the historic notes and describe the garden and fountain created by Kosciuszko. The wildflowers depicted are those that would be blooming in that area of New York at that time in history - and are those that are akin to similar wildflowers in Poland.  This was done because research indicates that Kosciuszko planted flowers near the fountain that reminded him of those he knew in Poland.

 The bucket and shovel  reflect the documents that he lowered soil by bucketfulls to create the remote garden., True to the philosophy of the Hudson River School, a dead tree stump is included in the painting as a momento mori, however, Tracy has also painted new growth rising from the roots to symbolize Kosciuszko's efforts that eventually led to Poland's freedom albeit after his death.
