Description

This tinted lithograph done after an 1887 painting by W. L. Sheppard depicts a battlefield scene showing the beginning of the charge of the First Maryland Regiment against the Pennsylvania Bucktail Rifles near Harrisonburg on June 6, 1862. . Confederate troops cluster in the right foreground and appear to be charging toward the left background. Smoke is visible rising in the distance. The publishing information and reports of the battle are printed just below the image. A statement below the Confederate flag reads, "Issued to raise funds for a monument in Baltimore to the Maryland Line."
