Title

Revenge taken by the Black Army for the Cruelties practised on them by the French

Description

This execution simply suspends the French officer in the air, slowly strangling him to death. His struggles, emphasized by the convulsing legs, reveal the hatred visited on opponents, themselves guilty of so many atrocities.
