General Note:
The record inscribed on the print says that during that upsurge the rebels counted numerous criminals harbouring evil intentions. The Imperial Court blames them for the suffering families. The people who were injured how the wish to break away from hardships. They had to bear seeing the women being dragged out of the city and suburbs. The defeated rebels are captured alive and executed. This print shows the heads of the decapitated criminals put up for exhibition in the city of Shanghai.
