Heath's engraving of the Battle of Albuera from Jenkins, The Martial Achievements of Great Britain and Her Allies (London 1814). 

Dubourg's engraving of "Marshal Beresford with the Polish lancer, at the Battle of Albuera" from Edward Orme's, Historic Military and Naval Anecdotes (London 1819).  The colors of the uniforms in this print are wholy unreliable, but the sense of the incident is well-conveyed.
