Description

The image depicts Union soldiers searching a bedroom for Confederate weapons. A woman and child stand to the side of a room as two soldiers look beneath a bed mattress. Two other soldiers stand in the background, fending off a man in nightclothes. A fifth soldier stands in the middle of the room looking at the woman and child. He is holding a Union flag in his proper left hand and pointing at it with his proper right hand.
