In front of a tent at right, and a small folding table with written documents, George Washington stands facing us and looking directly at us with a confident expression. His gray hair pulled back, he wears a blue coat with gold epaulets, a white ruffled shirt and pale yellow waistcoat and breeches, and the handle of a sword is visible at his side. At left in the middle distance, three soldiers in tricorn hats march away from us down a hillside path, while in the far distance, a horse and rider lead an army away from a river bank.
