Description

The print is a reproduction of a cartoon that originally appeared in Harper's Weekly, November 1864. The cartoon responds to the 1864 United States Presidential Election. Two men, John Bull (representing England) and Brother Jonathan (representing the United States), are pictured and the latter is riding a horse whose face is drawn in the likeness of Abraham Lincoln. John Bull tries to convince Brother Jonathan to "ride the other Horse a bit." A horse with the face of George McClellan is shown hiding behind foliage in the background. The print is organized and stored in a black album with other reproductive prints.
