This detailed picture is an original steel engraving. It was published in 1854 in "The Illustrated London News". It shows the Battle of Citate on January 6th 1854. It was a battle during the Crimean War. After Turkey crossed the Lower Danube for victory at Oltenitza (November 1853), General Mikhail Gorchakov counter-attacked upstream in Wallachia, advancing on Calafat. Turkish commander Ahmed Pasha then attacked the Russian garrison of Colonel Alexander Baumgarten at nearby Citate. The main Russian army arrived after four days’ fighting, and the Turks fell back.
On the reverse side of the print is a page of the Newspaper from Februrary 18th 1854. It would look even more beautiful when framed in a simple frame.
