From the original post we are dealing with a photo from the BSA site that is listed as being from the 1910s with a title of Defending Liberty.
Clue #1 – For Defense
John J. Tierney did some investigating and he thinks that the Minuteman image is from the WWII bonds and not WWI:

I am a big fan of Maureen Taylor (aka Photo Detective) and her blog. I came across a photo the other day that I thought would be perfect for those interested in a little photo detective challenge. It has to deal with the Boy Scouts of America that are celebrating 100 years this year.
The photo is from the BSA site, is titled Defending Liberty, and is categorized as being taken in the 1910s. Here is a link to the photo.
There are plenty of clues in the photo that hopefully we can figure out where this photo was taken and a narrower time of when it was taken.
Please comment on this blog (or on your own) with what you find.
It is a wet and windy Thursday night in Mesa, Arizona. I was able to get the Scouting Heritage booth setup at the Family History Expo. A big thanks to all those who helped this idea become reality.
About a month ago I got the idea of doing a Scouting booth at the Arizona Family History Expo. After all, it is Scouting’s 100th anniversary and I couldn’t think of a better group of people to share it with than those attending the expo.
The first contact I tried to make with the Boy Scouts was the Grand Canyon Council. I mistakenly thought that there was already a group at council that would be interested in such an event and would already have the resources to make it happen. Now it was already the first week in January.
I next tried the Mesa District since the expo falls within their boundaries and it would be easier to get local volunteers. The timing must have been bad as they couldn’t offer any assistance.
I was about to give up on the whole idea, but couldn’t let it go. I live in North Phoenix which is 40 minutes from where the expo would be held. I decided to contact the Thunderbird district executive, Carol Chacon, to see if there was anything she could do.
