During the Shimonoseki War of 1864 fleets from the United States, Britain, France and the Netherlands compelled the Choshu domain in Japan (now Yamaguchi Prefecture) to allow free passage through the Shimonoseki Channel. This photograph is based on a wet collodion glass negative and Besto was able to get the large military group to pose for him showing that by this point hostilities had ceased or there was a significant lull in activity.
