1785 Carried Drawn Flat Fort Gravesend Guns Movements Ropes Spectators Tilbury Troop Wagons Watch


EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative print depicts a pivotal moment in British military history as troops cross the River Thames from Gravesend to Tilbury Fort in 1785. The soldiers, along with their horses, guns, and supplies, are carried on flat-bottomed boats, skillfully maneuvered by ropes held by men on the shore. The scene is filled with a sense of anticipation and activity, as the troops prepare for the final leg of their journey to the fort. The year was 1785, a time of heightened tension between Britain and France, and the movement of troops to Tilbury Fort was a demonstration of the British government's determination to protect its shores from potential invasion. The fort, located on the north bank of the Thames, had a long and storied history, having been first built in the 15th century to defend against threats from the sea. The spectators on the shore, who watch the scene unfold with rapt attention, add to the sense of drama and importance of the moment. The print captures the essence of a military campaign in progress, with the hustle and bustle of men and animals, the clatter of weapons and wagons, and the steady rhythm of the boats being pulled across the river. This historical print offers a fascinating glimpse into the past, providing a visual record of a significant military movement that helped shape the course of British history. The image is a testament to the logistical challenges of moving large numbers of troops and supplies across water, and the determination and ingenuity of the soldiers and support personnel who made it happen.
