Left hand on hip and right hand holding baton. With scene of fort and billowing battle clouds in background.

He is generally best remembered for his role in putting down the Jacobite Rising at the Battle of Culloden in 1746, and as such is also known as "Butcher" Cumberland. The gilt slip and molded, ebonized frame has a printed paper label on the reverse: 'Sold by Tho. Bakewell Map and Printseller against Birchin Lane in Cornhill LONDON."
