Description

The lithograph is one in a series of three Civil War satires featuring shadow figures. The second plate cynically depicts the prowess of the military. In the plate's first image, male civilians and a soldier are pictured at a saloon. The plate also shows Jefferson Davis's body guards, who appear disorganized. The third image features soldiers chasing, killing, and roasting pigs. In the final image, a military caravan is shown fording a river.
