A painting by John Lewis Krimmel.
The inscription over the entrance to the leftmost tent reads "Don't give up the Ship", that over the entrance to the rightmost tent reads "The Battle of New Orleans", and the words on the flag are "Virtue, Liberty, Independence" (I can't make out any of the other lettering).
