Some wear dark trousers while others wear light. Of to the left of the image is a small group of four soldiers. One is dressed completely in gray and holds his musket at shoulder arms. He also wears his cartridge box and waist belt with cap box. Three other soldiers stand around him. Two wear gray uniforms while the third wears blue. One of the soldiers is blurry due to him moving to drink from a flask he has in his hand.
