The black and white engraving features a scene from the Battle of Chantilly, where General Philip Kearny was killed in action. The image depicts Kearny on horseback as Union troops and an American flag follow him into battle. Confederate soldiers stand at his front with their guns pointed. The engraving appears to have been removed from a bound volume as evidenced by the binding holes at the engraving's top edge.
