Battle of Mill Spring, K.Y. Jan. 19th 1862
In this print, Currier & Ives depicts three ranks of Union soldiers advancing in perfect formation while Confederate troops flee in panic, leaving behind dead and wounded soldiers. Without knowing that troops had recently arrived and reinforced the Union army, Rebel forces attacked the North at dawn on January 19, 1862. Initially, the attack was a success, but stiff Union resistance eventually forced the Confederate troops to retreat.
