Exterior scene depicting several figures two of which wear the uniform of the French National Garde. The figure on the left wears his uniform smartly, while in the centre a figure wears his hat askew. On the right a man rests his hand on the shoulger of a boy wearing a uniform which is much to big for him and a man with a fur hat holds a gun over his shoulder and a sword in his hand. In 1814, with the invasion of France by the Sixth Coalition there was a mass extended conscription of men which included those who would have traditionally been too old or too young in order to defend Paris in the Battle of Paris. Following the Restoration the National Guard expanded to 35,000.
