Wounded to the Rear, One More Shot was the most successful of John Rogers’s Civil War groups, which continued to sell long after the war ended. General Joseph R. Hawley, who received a plaster copy in 1868, commented that “nothing relating to the war in painting or sculpture surpasses One Shot More.” It depicts two injured Union soldiers, one of whom is preparing to fire a final shot at the enemy.
