OUTBREAK OF REBELLION IN THE UNITED STATES BY KIMMEL AND FORSTER 1865


A GRAND ALLEGORY OF THE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA

LADY LIBERTY (WITH A PHYGIAN SLAVE CAP) REIGNS OVER CAPITOL HILL FLANKED BY JUSTICE (UNBLINFOLDED AND MENACING A SWORD) AND 16TH PRESIDENT ABRAHAM LINCOLN (GESTURING TO PROSPERITY OF THE WEST).

DEMOCRATS BREAK THE CONTINENT IN TWO, DOWN A CRACK THAT LEADS BACK TO JEFFERSON DAVIS STUMPING BELOW A PALM TREE (AROUND WHICH WINDS THE PROVERBIAL SNAKE), WHILE OUTGOING PRESIDENT JAMES BUCHANAN (ASLEEP) AND TREASURY SECRETARY JOHN FLOYD (RAKING COINS INTO A BAG) FAIL TO SAVE MEN VOLUNTEERING LIVES AND RICHES AS THEIR WOMEN AND CHILDREN WEEP.
