State Dinner at the White House to the Joint High Commissioners, March 9th 1871

This hand-colored wood engraving of the State Dining Room by an unknown artist was made during the Ulysses S. Grant administration. The wood engraving captures a State Dinner held for the Joint High Commissioners on March 9, 1871. The Commission was made up of delegates from the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States and eventually led to the signing of the Treaty of Washington in 1871, which settled disputes between the three nations.
