Description

The cartoon is a reproduction of a nineteenth century political cartoon that depicts black man standing between threatening figures of Abraham Lincoln and a Southern sympathizer. The reproduction print has been removed from an unidentified bound volume. However, the original work appeared in the 9 November 1861 edition of Punch, a weekly British satirical magazine established in 1841 by wood engraver Ebenezer Landells and writer Henry Mayhew.
