British graves at Cathcart's Hill 
1855, Autumn 
Salt print

Battle of Inkerman, Sebastopol, in the Crimean War. Cathcart's Hill, a promontory overlooking Sebastopol, was used as an observation post and as a graveyard for British officers killed at the battle of Inkerman (5 Nov. 1854). It was named after a British general who died in that engagement. At the center of the picture is a large gravestone on which a Russian inscription has been carved -- an appeal to Russians not to desecrate the site.
