Object Description
Meiji period Japanese color woodblock print with an image of a battle scene. Triptych. Saigo and his troops were met by the imperial army in Kumamoto, and after 50 days of fighting, Saigo and his men were forced to retreat. They fought their way back home with a last battle through the mountains to Kagoshima. During a battle in September, Saigo committed suicide after being wounded, rather than suffer the indignities of capture, trial and execution.
