A rebel negro armed & on his guard


A black rebel holds a musket in his right hand as he turns to his left looking up apprehensively. Around his waist is a bandolier with a pouch and a hatchet. At his feet is the skull of a human head. Behind him on the right in the distance are two blacks running in the brush, also armed with rifles.
