A sunny day in a soldiers’ campground on a dusty field finds the soldiers in an idle midday moment. The soldiers are dressed in dark blue jackets with red designs embroidered on the cuffs and down the front, billowing red pantaloons, red caps and tall boots. In the foreground at right, two soldiers recline on the ground while another stands with his arm extended, having just thrown a horseshoe toward a stake in the ground at left, where others look on. Behind them at center, is an improvised shelter in which others sit in shade, while rows of white canvas tents fill the background.
