On verso: One of our special artist, Mr. Winslow Homer, has portrayed in the picture which we publish on pages 376 and 377 the thrilling effect of the News From The War. There is news that is exciting and triumphant, news of battles fought and won, of forts stormed in the teeth of rebel cannon, of brilliant charges with the bayonet, or fierce avalanches of cavalry, or daring reconnoissances and hair-breath escapes... The only thing which thrills every heart nowadays is the News of the War. Mr. Homer, we think, has done justice to his subject.

The lower right image depicts the young special artist drawing two rather tall soldiers, E. Farrin and J.J. Handley, from the 1st Me. Regt. who are both noted as being 6' 7" tall.
