Federal Troops driving the rebels from one of their batteries at Great Bethel

In a drawing by Alfred R. Waud, made during the Battle of Big Bethel on June 10, 1861, members of the 5th New York Volunteer Infantry attack Confederate batteries. The infantrymen wear distinctive Zouave-style uniforms modeled after those of the French Zouaves, an elite battalion of the French Army.
