More about this print: General Akechi Mitsuhide escaped from the battlefield after his army was defeated by Hideyoshi. As Mitsuhide fled to his home province, he was ambushed by a group of peasants hiding in the countryside near Ogurusu, and was killed with a bamboo spear. Allthough Hideyoshi was pleased that his opponent had been killed, he had seven farmers crucified as a warning for the rebellious peasants of Yamashiro province, whom he feared.
