Notes
  • Medium: Ink washes
  • Inscribed on plate attached to frame: "No. 4 Death of Gen-L Mercer at Princetown Jany 1777. J. Trumbull 10th May 1786". Presumably this reflects an inscription on the verso of the drawing.
  • Holdings at Yale: Two oil paintings and three sketches on the same subject.
Source acquisition
Gift of Junius Spencer Morgan, Princeton University Class of 1888.
