Description (Brief)
The unsigned rough pencil sketch of a man in Scottish military dress probably corresponds to a soldier of the Forty-second Black Watch Regiment, who appears in the painting Here Comes the Bride, 1759. Ferris believed members of the regiment, which was stationed in the colonies in 1759, would have been present at Washington’s wedding.
