Description

An example of Rogers's genre work, Challenging the Union Vote takes place in the old South where a Unionist ' alongside his granddaughter's attempts to register his vote. The registrar, however, is an ex-Confederate, who pushes the man's hand aside while looking for his name on the register, perhaps in hopes of disqualifying his vote.
