    George McClellan: Anti-Lincoln Currier & Ives Print. Medium folio Currier & Ives lithograph (trimmed to 15" x 11") published in 1864, titled "Abraham's Dream! 'Coming Events Cast Their Shadows Before.'" It manages to touch on various aspects of the Lincoln legend, including his love of Shakespearean tragedies, his premonitions as manifested in dreams, the attempt to pass through Baltimore incognito and the Emancipation Proclamation. In his nightmare, Columbia kicks Lincoln out of the White House while tossing the decapitated head of a black man at him. McClellan walks in nonchalantly to the right. A very clean example.
