Description

John C. Fremont: Outstanding 1856 Cartoon. Although unmarked, we believe "The Balls Are Rolling - Clear the Track" was published by Currier & Ives. It is a variety we have never seen before and shows James Buchanan being crushed by the Cincinnati platform and large balls representing Republican-leaning states. Fillmore, grasping the Fugitive Slave Act, seems destined for the same fate as Buchanan. A train heading for California appears in the background (foreshadowing the transcontinental railroad) while the sacking and burning of Lawrence, Kansas is shown in the foreground. It measures 16" x 12", has numerous tears and has been professionally backed with rice paper.

Service and Handling Description: Flat Material, Large (view shipping information)
