This circa 1798 print features a half length portrait of George Washington. Washington is seen here dressed in military uniform sitting on a chair holding a plan. His sword rests on his right arm while his hat is placed on a table next to him. A medal from the Society of Cincinnati hangs from his left lapel. In the background rows of military tents are visible.
