The artist is Yoshitoshi, signing "Yoshitoshi hitsu" 芳年筆.

The date/censor seal is for 1869, 2nd month.

The other seal reads "24" 廿四, indicating that this is the 24th design in the series/album.

The series this comes from is "Seichū gishi meimei gaden" 誠忠義士銘々画伝 ("Pictorial Biographies of the Loyal Retainers"). See:
