It's the left sheet of a triptych design by Utagawa Yoshitora 歌川芳虎, entitled "Kōhei gonen Ōshū Koromogawa gassen" 康平五年奥州衣川合戦 ("The Battle of Koromo River in Mutsu Province in the Year 1062").

The labeled figure is Minamoto no Yoshiie, here identified as "Hachimantarō Yoshiie" 八幡太郎義家.

The full design:

The date seal is "dragon 11" for 1856, 11th month.

The Yamada-shoten impression bears a seal (Marks 25-013) reading "Iseyoshi", belonging to a publisher known only by that seal. Your print appears to bear a different seal, though too little of it is visible for me to identify it.

Here's a sheet from another crÍped version like yours:

This one bears a publisher seal ending in "tatsu" 辰, though again I can't identify it.
