    Description

    Civil War: Cartoon Comments on the End of the War. "The First of May 1865 or Genl. Moving Day in Richmond Va." shows Robert E. Lee collecting weapons and symbols of power from a departing CSA official, ostensibly Jefferson Davis. Various onlookers attend the scene and a black man thumbs his nose. Two signs adorn the Confederate White House: "Sheriff Sale" and "To Let, Apply Lincoln & Co." This was published by H. & W. Voight and lithographed by Kimmel & Forster, likely prior to Lincoln's assassination. It measures 11.5" x 9.5", is evenly toned and has some border loss.
