The black and white engraving depicts a scene from a Civil War battle. Several men ride on horseback with swords drawn. Some are shown falling from their horses or lifeless on the ground. Dust fills the scene in the background. The image is printed on off-white paper with black ink. It appears to have been removed from a bound volume.
