An engraving of a cartoon by Englishman Henry William Bunbury (1750-1811) titled "Fought all his battles o'er again and thrice he slew the slain" published on January 1, 1782. The title is drawn from John Dryden's poem "Alexander's Feast." Two elderly gentlemen peer at the sheet of paper held by an old military officer with a wooden leg as he explains his campaigns to them. A small dog lies at their feet. Through the door behind them a prancing fiddler can be seen. Design is in an oval.
