The print features a black-and-white image of Abraham Lincoln's half-faced camp, erected in Spencer County, Indiana. In the image, a three-sided building is pictured amongst a wooded background. The building's fourth side is partially covered by animal skins. A man is shown seated in side, while two other men are outside. One tends to a pot strung over a fire, while the second carries a gun and a dead bird. In the foreground, a log lays across the forest floor with an ax wedged in its side.
