George Rogers Clark

George Rogers Clark, a brigadier general of Virginia troops during the American Revolution (17751783), wears his military uniform in this watercolor portrait by James Barton Longacre. The watercolor was painted in or about 1830, after Clark's death, and is based on an earlier oil portrait by artist John Wesley Jarvis.
