Summary:
Miniature print (lithograph?) of "The Berkshire Boy's Return" with a description on the back: "Charles Gates, a minor son of William K. Gates of Lee, wished to enlist, three years ago, but his aged parents objected to it. One morning he was sent to drive the cows to pasture, on his way to work. But at night he did not come back, because he had run away and enlisted in the 10th Regiment. He remained through the three years without a furlough, and returned with the regiment, unharmed by rebel bullets. He arrived in the old pasture at home, one night last week, just at 'cow-time' and leisurely drove up the same old cows, as if he hadn't been away for three years."
