Dutch schoolplate (2)

Another drawing made for schools but now situated on the 26th of june 1787 was the stopping of the coach of Wilhelmina (the wife of Stadtholder William V and sister of the Prussian king Frederick William II)  by Dutch revolutionaries at Goejanverwellersluis.
This incident led to the invasion of the Prussian army into the Dutch Republic.
The revolutionaries fled to France and returned some years later in the wake of the French armies. Some Dutch regular troops could be seen on the plate.
