The print is a reproduction of a nineteenth century political cartoon published sometime at the end of the Civil War. In the cartoon, Abraham Lincoln is depicted as an officer who has hunted down Jefferson Davis. Lincoln holds a short baton in his proper right hand and grips Davis's shirt with his proper left. In Davis's proper left hand, he holds a folder labeled 'US Treasury.' The print is organized and stored in a black album with other reproductive prints.
