Recto: "The fight on Sumner's left at Poffinberger's Farm where the rebels covered themselves with every conceivable kind of shelter. The fight here was very sanguinary but of short duration as the rebels issued from the woods below in overwhelming force and turned the left flank, which was but a temporary advantage to them. The regiment in the foreground is Baxter's Fire Zouaves which occupied extreme left of Sedgwick's division. Battle of Antietam. Sept. 17, 1862."
