    Description

    Horatio Seymour: Draft Riots Cartoon from 1868. This 9 1/2" x 12" cartoon was likely issued when Seymour ran for President in 1868. It is a representation of rioters in Publishers Row, lynching Negroes and setting fires. Seymour, then Governor of New York, made a speech at the time in which he addressed New York draft-resisters as "My Friends". Titled "The Meeting of the Friends, City Hall Park", it uses caricature and various racial and ethnic stereotypes to make its point; namely, that Seymour was unfit to be President.
