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.

This image shows a gold framed portrait of Thomas McDonogh. The portrait is against a white background. Thomas is wearing a red jacket with a blue shirt. His right hand is resting inside a buttonhole of the shirt, so you cannot see his hand. His left wrist is placed on the wooden chair he is sitting on, with his hand dangling over. His eyebrows are raised as he stares at the viewer.
