Military History Photo Friday: Skirmish in the Mountains of Morocco

Next week I'm heading to Tangier, Morocco, to spend a month finishing up a novel set there. So I'm in a Moroccan frame of mind. This week, here's Eugene Delacroix's 1863 Orientalist painting "Arabs Skirmishing in the Mountains." A detail is below.

I'll be popping up to the mountains once or twice during my stay. Hopefully I won't get involved anything like this!

Good painting choice.
I know you're excited about your trip!

Looking for more from Sean McLachlan? He also hangs out on the Civil War Horror blog, where he focuses on Civil War and Wild West history.

You can also find him on his Twitter feed and Facebook page.
