Description

The print is a reproduction of a political cartoon that satirizes the unlikely pairing of George B. McClellan and George Hunt Pendleton in the 1865 United States Presidential Election. In the center of the cartoon, McClellan and Pendleton are depicted as conjoined twins that are connected by "The Party Tie." Pictured at the left of the cartoon are two Union soldiers who vocalize their disapproval of the connection. At the cartoon's right, Clement Laird Vallandigham and Horatio Seymour convey their "peace at any price" stance on the war. The print is organized and stored in a black album with other reproductive prints.
