date: circa 1781

location: Appears to be a rendition of "Francisco's Fight" at West Creek Tavern in Nottoway County, VA, where he "... single-handedly subdued nine of Tarleton's feared Dragoons in hand-to-hand combat" while his cohort (by tavern in left background) stole off to warn Gen. Horatio Gates of (Banastre) Tarleton's whereabouts. (DAR stone marker on nearest county roadside, highway marker on U.S. Route 360 at wayside near Amelia County line.)
