His excy. Nathaniel Green, Esq., major general of the American Army
- This image is of an etching of Nathanael Greene, who was a major general in the American Revolution. The etching was created ca. 1781 and incorrectly spells his name as "Nathaniel Green." The head-and-shoulders portrait of Greene faces right in an oval medallion suspended above an "allegorical illustration of America nurturing two infants representing diverse racial groups; in the background is a military engagement between American and British forces." The image and bibliographic information is available from the Library of Congress in the collection of The American Revolution in drawings and prints; a checklist of 1765-1790 graphics.

Public Domain is a copyright term that is often used when talking about copyright for creative works. Under U.S. copyright law, individual items that are in the public domain are items that are no longer protected by copyright law. This means that you do not need to request permission to re-use, re-publish or even change a copy of the item. Items enter the public domain under U.S. copyright law for a number of reasons: the original copyright may have expired; the item was created by the U.S. Federal Government or other governmental entity that views the things it creates as in the public domain; the work was never protected by copyright for some other reason related to how it was produced (for example, it was a speech that wasn't written down or recorded); or the work doesn't have enough originality to make it eligible for copyright protection.
