The lithograph is one in a series of three Civil War satires featuring shadow figures. The third plate features six cartoons that cynically depict the exploitation of war news. In the topmost cartoon, a battle scene is shown. Three center cartoons depict citizens reading war news, a man with a raised fist, and a bugler receiving instructions. The bottom two cartoons show a sentry and sergeant conversing and soldiers threatening a cow.
