The print is a reproduction of an political cartoon the satirizes the antislavery platform of the Republican party during the 1860 Presidential Election. Horace Greeley is pictured as an organ grinder while Abraham Lincoln is shown prancing on a wooden rail. William H. Seward is depicted in the cartoon's background holding an African-American infant. Henry J. Raymond (New York Times editor) and James Watson Webb (Courier and Enquirer editor) are also featured. The print is organized and enclosed in a black album with other reproductive prints.
