Description

In the image Charles ""Doc"" Jennison, the leader of the 7th Kansas Volunteer Cavalry, (i.e., Jennison's Jayhawkers) is shown leading a raid on a Confederate sympathizer's home. Men are shown burning structures, stealing animals, shooting inhabitants. Jennison is shown riding a horse with a bare-breasted woman slung across his saddle. The image is meant to showcase the brutality of the Union Jayhawkers.
