The print is a reproduction of a nineteenth century political cartoon. In the cartoon, Abraham Lincoln is shown carting George B. McClellan in a wheelbarrow. McClellan carries an open parasol in his proper right hand and a shovel over his proper left shoulder. The pair travels to Richmond, as indicated by a sign in the background. The print is organized and stored in a black album with other reproductive prints.
