Description

Chromolithograph depicts Sheridan's Ride, October 19, 1864. The print features Union General Sheridan riding a black horse and hoisting a flag, rallying his troops who crowd the middle ground for battle. A couple soldiers appear dead or wounded as a result of the surprise attack led by Confederate General Jubal Early; however, the surviving troops raise their arms or hats in solidarity with their leader.
