From a series of campaign sketches we see a women assisting a wounded soldier compose a letter to send back home during the civil war. Another exhibit of the harder times in history.

Finally we see a peaceful shore line from the Bermuda. Homer uses watercolor here to give less detail to the piece but a brighter and clearer idea of the scene.
