The stereograph features a black and white image of the statue The American Volunteer, which depicts a man dressed in a military uniform. The statue is full-length and the subject stands at parade rest and holds a gun. Two beams and a rope frame the statue on either side. Two houses stand in the background. The albumen print is mounted on a yellow card with rounded edges. The card's reverse contains contributor information as well as additional information about the statue.
