Published as a black-and-white illustration in Charles A. Cuffel’s History of Durell’s Battery in the Civil War (Philadelphia: Craig Finley and Co., 1903), opposite p. 55. This commission came to Trego as a product of his fame after painting The Rescue of the Colors in 1899. Charles Cuffel, the battery historian, lived in Doylestown. He wrote in the preface to the book: “The committee was fortunate in securing the excellent illustrations drawn Mr. William T. Trego, the well known painter of military subjects.”
