The print is a reproduction of a nineteenth century political cartoon. In the cartoon, a caricature of Abraham Lincoln is shown. His face and top hat are exaggerated in size. In his proper left hand, Lincoln holds a rod and points it a the bottom of a soldier kneeling inside of a foxhole. Beside the foxhole, a sign that says, "To Richmond," appears. The print is organized and stored in a black album with other reproductive prints.
