A vivouack in safety or Florida troops preventing a surprise
"A vivouack in safety or Florida troops preventing a surprise."  Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division, LC-USZ62-49595.

In another parody of the Van Buren administration's costly policies in Florida, soldiers recline in the lap of luxury, attended by an Indian maid and protected by a "Puppy Guard Sentinel." A soldier playing chess expresses his gratitude for the bloodhounds: "Since our new Allies from Cuba have joined us, we can have a quiet game of Chess without any fear of a check from our red friends in the Swamp."
