George Washington after the Battle of Princeton Print
This 1780 portrait is based on Charles Wilson Peale’s 1779 commission from the Supreme Executive Council of Pennsylvania, and is one of at least 18 replicas Peale executed between 1779 and 1781 depicting Washington at the Battle of Princeton.
The battle, fought on January 3, 1777, marked the first time in open combat that American troops broke a British line. Washington himself rode at the head of his troops, in direct fire, seemingly invincible. Peale knew Washington’s leadership at Princeton well, as he served in the battle and saw fire at Princeton. Here, he portrayed the victorious general standing at ease with Princeton's Nassau Hall in the background. His stance and bearing express an unshakable confidence in America's cause.
