1770, Nov 251845, Feb 21
American painter and military man, was born in Gloucester, Massachusetts. In 1793 Sargent went to London, where he studied with Benjamin West and had courteous treatment from John Singleton Copley. Accordingly, in that same year he took a commission in the national army then being raised under the command of Alexander Hamilton. This service was brief, but it gave Sargent a taste for military life which motivated his long connection with the Massachusetts militia. In or shortly after 1799 he joined the Boston Light Infantry, which had been organized the year before and of which his brother, Daniel Sargent, was captain.
