Lincoln Depicted as Native American
The print is a reproduction of a nineteenth century caricature of Abraham Lincoln. In the caricature, Lincoln is shown dressed as a Native American. He wears fur-lined breeches, boots, a shawl, and a headdress. He also has stars painted on his body. In his proper right hand, he holds a book, while an [ax?] rests in his proper left. Another man stands in the background with his arms crossed at his chest. The print is stored and organized in a black album with other reproductive prints.
