Description

The black and white steel engraving depicts a scene from the Battle of New Bern. Several soldiers fight on foot, and several American flags can be seen. More soldiers are pictured in the background. The image appears to be taken from a copy of John S. C. Abbott's The History of the Civil War in America.
