Notes
Statement of Responsibility: Printed on border: "From a sketch made on the field at the time by A. R. Waud." Illegible signature on lower right.

Content : "The scene is near McClellan's headquarters at Dr. Tent's farm, before daylight on Sunday, June 29; the Sixth Corps (Franklin's) is falling back; the fires are from the burning of commissary stores and forage; the artillery in position covers the approaches from the Chickahominy, the artillerymen resting underneath the guns. The regiment in the middle ground is the 16th New York, who wore straw hats in the campaign, and were, in consequence, such conspicuous targets for the enemy that in the Seven Days' fighting they lost 228 men.--Editor"--printed on border.
