This biography from the Archives of AskART:
John Rogers Vinton was born on June 16, 1801 in Providence, Rhode Island.  He entered the US Military Academy at West Point Academy at the young age of fourteen, completed his course of study in two and a half years, and  received a commission as Lieutenant in 1817, at the age of 16.   He served as Aide-de-camp to Maj. General Jacob Brown (General-in-Chief of the Army) from 1825 to 1828.  He was killed in action on March 22, 1847, in the Battle of Vera Cruz, during the Mexican-American War.

In his honor, a military outpost in Florida was renamed "Fort Vinton."  In addition to military pursuits, Vinton was well versed in the Greek, Latin, Hebrew languages, and well-read in theology, physics, ethics, and several other academic disciplines.  His skill for drawing was noted while at West Point and this lead to him being assigned to topographical duty on the Atlantic coast and Canadian border.  He later became an artist in his own right, creating portraits, landscapes, and documenting the Seminole War (in which he participated) through painting.  His portrait of the captured Seminole leader Osceola, drawn from life, is now held by the National Museum of the American Indian.
