This Remington shows Lieutenant Powatan Henry Clarke and one of his 10th Cavalry troopers rescue the wounded Corporal Edward Scot, while under fire from Apaches, down in Mexico, on May 3, 1886.
This illustration appeared several months later on the cover of Harper's Weekly.
Clarke received the Medal of Honor for that action.
A few years later, Remington wrote a magazine article, "A Scout with the Buffalo Soldiers."
