1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.5 cm ( 10 x 6.875 in).
Photograph is printed in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Judges, iv: 13-16.)--The valley of Jezreel is the great battlefield of Syria. Here Deborah and Barak routed the hosts of Jabin under Sisera. Here also on the southern edge of the plain near, Josiah, King of Judah, was defeated and slain by Pharaoh Necho, King of Egypt, while on his way to the Euphrates. Here Gideon fought with the Midianites. Here the Philistines encamped in their conflict with Saul. Here Saladin met the crusaders, and here in 1799 the famous battle of Mount Tabor was fought between Napoleon's army and the Turks. We are looking in the above picture toward the Mediterranean and Mount Carmel. When the people you see plowing were asked to stop long enough to let us take their picture, they promised to do so on condition of receiving backsheesh, and for this favor they thought a shilling the proper compensation." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi." See 5088BAI/LVi6CAJS (Voyager # 356524)
