In the black and white steel engraving, a scene from the Battle of Lookout Mountain is depicted. This battle took place on November 24th, 1863 and resulted in a Union victory. The engraving features Union soldiers climbing a mountain slope. One has fallen to the ground, possibly because he is wounded. In the background, battle lines and smoke are pictured. The engraving appears to have been removed from a bound volume, possibly volume 3 of The War with the South: a History of the Late Rebellion by Robert Tomes, Benjamin G. Smith, New York, Virtue & Yorston, 3 volumes, 1862-1867.
