Robert Rogers 



Frame: 12 ¼” x 9 ½”; Sight: 6” x 3 ¾”


Robert Rogers was an American frontiersman who served as a captain during the French and Indian War. He was known for his expertise in wilderness survival and guerrilla tactics, which he used to great effect against the French and their Native American allies. After the war, Rogers struggled financially and even spent time in debtors' prison. However, his legacy lived on through his book, "Journals of Major Robert Rogers," which detailed his experiences and tactics in the wilderness. This French engraving from 1780 may have been created as a tribute to Rogers' military prowess or as a way to commemorate his contributions to the war effort. It serves as a reminder of the bravery and ingenuity of early American soldiers like Robert Rogers.
