Description

This drawing is a political cartoon that was published in the February 12, 1976, issue of the Dayton, Ohio, Journal Herald. The cartoon depicts a head and shoulders portrait of President Abraham Lincoln. In the upper left corner behind him is a decorative element that resembles an American flag with "A. Lincoln '76" written on it. The title, ". . .Timeless and Immortal" is written below the portrait. "From life mask" and the artist's signature and date are just below Lincoln's left shoulder. In the upper margin, "A bicentennial birthday" is handwritten in blue pencil but has been crossed out. "Journal Feb 12 1976" is handwritten in pencil along the top edge of the margin.
