The hand-colored lithograph depicts a scene from the third day of the Battle of Gettysburg. The Confederate battle lines are featured at the image's left, while Union forces are shown on the right. Canons are shown firing toward the Confederate army. This copy of the lithograph has the border edges removed and has been adhered to a wooden plaque. The title information has been pasted to the plaque's verso. The documentary information that originally appeared beneath the image does not survive.
