Joseph Goodhue recalled that he got a taste for military life when he spent two months in 1775 with an uncle who was a Captain in the American Revolution. Only after farming for several years did Goodhue decide at thirty-two to become a doctor. He trained for the profession by studying with two physicians and attending a series of medical lectures. Goodhue then acted on his long-delayed dream and joined the army, serving as the United States Army Surgeon for Fort Constitution, New Hampshire, for twenty-one years. His grandson painted this portrait after the elderly Goodhue had retired to Deerfield, Massachusetts.
