Description: A battle scene shown from behind the American line. Soldiers and buckskin-clad militiamen are depicted firing upon advancing British troops. Two black men are shown reloading muskets. General Jackson is shown in the distance with hat off, encouraging his troops. The line of fortification is inaccurately shown as a curving bulwark constructed of large cotton bales.
