    "Outbreak of the Rebellion in the United States 1861" Lithograph, ca. 1865. Beautiful color lithograph of Miss Liberty, Abraham Lincoln, James Buchanan, Jeff Davis and Alexander Stephens. Entered according to Act of Congress 1865, by Kimmel & Foster in clerk's office, etc.

    Lithograph is the Republican's version of the war, with contributions of the capitalists who pour out their treasure at Mr. Lincoln's and Miss Liberty's feet. John Floyd, a member of James Buchanan's accused corruption, greedily rakes in the gold coins across the splitting countryside. Jeff Davis and Alexander H. Stephens, are portrayed just behind the tearing flag. The broken shackle anachronistically refers to the abolition of slavery. James Buchanan slumbers through the crisis. Measures approximately 27.75" x 22".

    Fine, light foxing, chips on edges, image if very nice, and old tape residue verso.
