Winston Churchill addressing Unionist Party meeting, August 10, 1901
Churchill's birth and family connections often provided opportunities unavailable to other young politicians. This photograph shows him addressing a large political rally held in the summer of 1901 at his birthplace, Blenheim Palace. Seconding a resolution commending leaders of the Conservative (Unionist) Party, Churchill praised them for having brought the "colonies into line with the Mother Country" even as he condemned "the mischievous work" of the deceased Liberal Prime Minister William E. Gladstone.
