The text at the bottom of the print (Not shown above) is instructive:

Text from the Lithograph (Format modified for clarity).


The text reads: (Underlining by the Editor)

"THE SECOND BATTLE OF BULL RUN FOUGHT AUGT. 29TH 1862.

"Between the 'Army of Virginia' under Maj! Gen! John Pope, and the combined forces of the Rebel army under Lee, Jackson, and others. This terrific battle was fought on the identical battle field of Bull run, and lasted with great fury from daylight until after dark, when the rebels were driven back, and the Union Army rested in triumph on the field."

This is, of course, not how Second Manassas ended.
