Here is a portion of the historical brief that accompanies the print:

Two days before the epic battle of Waterloo, Napoleon’s Army of the North fought two major battles: The Emperor personally directed the defeat of the Prussian army under Field Marshal Gebhard von Blücher at Ligny while his renowned Marshal Michel Ney fought the Duke of Wellington’s diverse Anglo-Allied army at Quatre Bras…. The Emperor’s strategy was to first defeat the Prussians and then turn on Wellington. Wellington’s troops arrived incrementally at the Quatre Bras crossroads but held on to their position. However, Ney’s aggressive tactics prevented Wellington from marching to the aid of Blücher. Waterloo is a more famous battle, but the fighting at Quatre Bras was equally terrible. The scene depicted by Keith Rocco shows an incident at Quatre Bras between French lancers of Lieutenant General Pire’s 2nd Cavalry Division and the British 44th Regiment of Foot. A group of lancers from the 6th Regiment, after having pierced the line of the British infantry, made for the colors of the 2nd Battalion of the 44th British Regiment. Though flowery in his Victorian description of the action, the 44th’s commander, Lieutenant Colonel Hamerton, leaves us a graphic depiction of this confrontation: “A French Lancer gallantly charged at the Colours, and severely wounded Ensign Christie, who carried one of them, by a thrust of his lance, which, entering the left eye, penetrated to the lower jaw. The Frenchman then endeavored to seize the Standard, but the brave Christie, notwithstanding the agony of his wound, with a presence of mind almost unequalled, flung himself upon it —, not to save himself, but to preserve the honour of his Regiment. As the Colour fluttered in its fall, the Frenchman tore off a portion of the silk with the point of his lance; but he was not permitted to bear the fragment beyond the ranks. Both shot and bayoneted by the nearest of the soldiers of the 44th, he was borne to the earth, paying with the sacrifice of his life for his display of unavailing bravery.“ ...
