The black and white steel engraving features a scene from the Battle of Shiloh. In the scene, General Grant rides his horse as Confederate soldiers flee the cavalry charge. In the foreground, a tattered flag is held by a fallen soldier. The Battle of Shiloh was a major battle in the Civil War's Western Theater, and is considered one of the bloodiest battles in American history, resulting in over twenty-three thousand collective casualties.
