Lieutenant John Ross of the 34th Regiment was a distinguished member of the British Army. After the final campaigns of the French and Indian War, he explored and mapped the Mississippi Valley before rotating back to Great Britain with his regiment in the late-1760s. Ross returned to America in 1776 and participated in a number of battles in the North. This circa 1769 portrait, attributed to Scottish-born artist David Martin, depicts Ross after his first American tour of duty.
