Description

The print is a reproduction of a political cartoon that originally appeared in Punch on 13 September 1862. In the cartoon, a boxing match between Jefferson Davis and Abraham Lincoln is depicted. The two are exhausted and are supported by two African-American men. In the background the French Eagle and British Lion are shown speaking to one another in regard to what they should do to help end the war. The cartoon references both Lincoln's and Davis's depleted resources during the American Civil War. The print is organized and stored in a black album with other reproductive prints.
