Description

The cartoon is a reproduction of a nineteenth century political cartoon that depicts Abraham Lincoln dressed as a Native American, with Charleston harbor in the background. Refers to the Union use of the Stone Fleet to block the harbor. The reproduction print has been removed from an unidentified bound volume. However, the original work appeared in the 1 February 1862 edition of Punch, a weekly British satirical magazine established in 1841 by wood engraver Ebenezer Landells and writer Henry Mayhew.
