Historical Notes: As the fort was not constructed (under the direction of Captain Compton of Lower Hutt) until 1845 and Brees left Wellington in 1845, this work must have been painted in that year. The 58th Regiment occupied the fort immediately after it had been completed in April 1845. The soldiers shown are militia, civilian volunteers, identifiable from their mixture of red and blue uniforms.
