Jeff Davis's November Nightmare
The print is a reproduction of a political cartoon that originally appeared in Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper on 3 December 1864. In the cartoon, Jefferson Davis is shown having a nightmare about Abraham Lincoln winning the 1864 United States Presidential Election. Davis lies in his bed with Lincoln sitting on his chest. Under Lincoln's proper right hand, a paper with the words "Latest Union Majorities" is pictured. The print is organized and stored in a black album with other reproductive prints.
