WAR. PEACE.

“With lion heart and frantic mien, / The warrior seeks the battle scene, / To risk his precious blood and fight / For glory and his vaunted right.

WHEN TURNED AROUND

“But when he hears the cannon roar, / And views the dying in his gore, / His courage fails and then, alas! / He homeward travels like an ass.” 

 

Four vignettes of Civil War battle scenes were added to the corners of ‘War’ and four bucolic scenes to ‘Peace.’
