Albumen photograph, 6.5 x 8.5 in. (sight), on 10.5 x 13.5 in. mount. Photographer unknown. Penciled inscription on verso reads, "Keystone Battery at Centreville, VA," with additional inked note identifying the scene as "later Battery A - Barclay Warburton - Spanish War."

A distant view showing Captain J.M. Knap's Pennsylvania Independent Battery "E" approaching a battlefield near Centreville.
