About Charles Willson Peale

DAR Ancestor #: A088051

Charles Wilson Peale April 15, 1741-February 22, 1827 was an American painter, soldier, and naturalist.

He raised troops for the War of Independence and eventually gained the rank of captain in the Pennsylvania militia by 1777, having participated in several battles. While in the field, he continued to paint, doing miniature portraits of various officers in the Continental Army. He produced enlarged versions of these in later years. He served in the Pennsylvania state assembly in 1779–1780, after which he returned to painting full-time.
