When the competition was announced for the decoration for the new House of Parliament, to be held at Westminster Hall in 1847, Cooper submitted this painting in the hope that it would be purchased. In order to complete the picture, the artist used a model of the battlefield then on exhibition in London, while a friend in Brussels sent him breastplates worn by the various cavalry regiments, and a trooper of the Life Guards acted as a model.
