Description

The print is a reproduction of a political cartoon originally published in the June 30, 1860 edition of Vanity Fair. The cartoon depicts delegates acting as their own Plug Uglies during the 1860 Baltimore Convention, which was a nod to the ongoing dispute between the Northern and Southern Democrats during the 1860 Presidential Election. The print is organized and stored in a black album with other reproductive prints.
