Description

This cartoon was removed from the December 6, 1864, issue of the French periodical titled "Actualites" and mounted on cardstock. The image depicts a man firing a large cannonball labeled "Reelection de Lincoln" at another man. The second man--a Southerner--holds a gun and wears a hat. He recoils, bent over as the large cannonball hits him in the stomach. Text under the image reads, "Le plus rude projectile qu'ait encore recu le sud!" which translated to English is "The hardest projectile the south has yet received."
