Framed, oil on wood panel portrait of Wilmington lawyer, Archibald Hamilton (1782-1841). The portrait is a half-length, three-quarters view of a slightly plump, older man with curly red hair and sideburns who is facing right. He is seated in a chair and wears a heavy, double-breasted black coat with two rows of brass buttons down the front, a tan waistcoat, and a white shirt and cravat. The sitter served under Captain Caesar A. Rodney as First Lieutenant of the 2nd Company of Artillery in the War of 1812. He was also a member of a committee that sought unsuccessfully to bring a branch of the Bank of the United States to Wilmington and served as Commissioner for the Union National Bank of Wilmington in 1839.
