Illustration from V R I Her Life And Empire published in 1901 After William Simpson (1823-1899). Info from wiki: The Siege of Kars was the last major operation of the Crimean War. In June 1855, attempting to alleviate pressure on the defence of Sevastopol, Emperor Alexander II ordered General Nikolay Muravyov to lead his troops against areas of Ottoman interest in Asia Minor. The garrison of Kars declined to face further hardships of the winter siege and surrendered to General Muravyov on 28 November (according to Gregorian calendar) 1855.
