The 60th Royal American Regiment came to the colonies circa 1755, during the French and Indian war. They learned, through misfortune, fighting here was not conducted according to European standards. Rarely did opposing forces confront one another open meadow style in formal rank. In this painting, a daughter proudly makes sure her father looks his best whether he is off to battle or some festive occasion.
This piece and its companion painting, "Fatherly Advice" deal with lighter moments.
