Inscription.  
Thomas Hart Benton was born at 214 East McKinney St., Neosho, on April 15, 1889, the son of Congressman M. E. Benton, and grand nephew of Missouri’s first senator, Thomas Hart Benton.

Tom’s early years were shared by listening to court house politicians and on campaign trips with his father. His memories of those years and observations of rural America greatly influenced his painting.
