About This Item

New York: Published by H. & W. Voight. Lith. by Kimmel & Forster, 254 & 256 Canal St., 1865. Broadside illustration, 9" x 10-3/8". Brightly colored, mildly toned. Small spot at top blank margin. Upper margin of blank verso shows remnants from former taping. Lower blank forecorner chipped. Very Good. "From building inscribed, 'To let Apply Lincoln & Co.', Southerners, at whom Negro thumbs his nose, are moving 'C.S.A. Treasury,' etc." [Weitenkampf]. Anticipating the end of the Civil War in Richmond, the cartoon depicts Robert E. Lee collecting swords for placement in a cart drawn by two skeletal dogs, Treasury Secretary Trenholm hauling away worthless Confederate bonds, and a "Sheriff Sale" sign on the building. Bystanders look on. A dog urinates on a box entitled "C.S.A. Treasury. Waster Paper." Despite the title's date, the cartoon was probably issued before May 1, that date being the artist's prediction of the time of the Confederacy's collapse. The reference to Lincoln & Co. suggests the President was still alive. Weitenkampf 148 [recording a 1905 reproduction only]. Not in Reilly. OCLC 191119865 [4- AAS, Clements, U VA, Williams] as of October 2019. Also located at the Library of Congress, Boston Public Library, Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection.
