A colorful printed certificate for soldiers serving in the Union Army against the "Great Rebellion."

At the top center is a seal with acanthus leaves spreading out from it, framing the title below. Two small military scenes appear in the upper corners. In the upper left is an armed soldier guarding a Union camp, and on the right soldiers charge into battle carrying the American flag.

Below, Columbia, holding a large flag and with a bald eagle beside her, points toward a distant shore at right, where a fortress is under bombardment. On the near shore Union troops advance, drawing a caisson and artillery behind them.
