A portrait of Lieutenant-General Hugh Percy, 2nd Duke of Northumberland (1742 - 1817), dressed in robes, seated to the left, holding a paper in his left hand inscribed, 'Magna Charta'. Percy was an officer in the British army and later a British peer. He participated in the Battle of Lexington and Concord and the Battle of Long Island during the American Revolutionary War, but resigned his command in 1777 due to disagreements with his superior, General Howe. Born Hugh Smithson, he assumed the surname of Percy by Act of Parliament along with his father in 1750 and was styled Lord Warkworth from 1750 until 1766. He was styled Earl Percy from 1766, when his father was created Duke of Northumberland.
