Description

The print is a reproduction of a political cartoon satirizing the 1860 United States Presidential Election. In the cartoon, a cockfight is shown between Stephen A. Douglas and James C. Buchanan, both drawn with the bodies of roosters. Douglas stands victorious on Buchanan�s body. To the right, an unidentified man places another cock, John C. Breckinridge, into the ring. To the left, an Irishman watches the fight (possibly a nod to the Tammany Democrats of New York). The print is organized and stored in a black album with other reproductive prints.
