Description

This color print features Columbia in the center wearing red and white clothing with fabric of patriotic blue with white stars draped around her from the waist down. Holding a staff in one hand and a patriotic shield in the other, she stands next to a patriotic eagle with arrows and olive branches in its claws. The dome of the Capitol Building can be seen in the background. A narrow decorative oval border surrounds the central image with small portraits of the first sixteen Presidents of the United States each in a gold-colored oval border spaced around it. The title appears printed in an arc to match the oval-shape just below the image. The names of the presidents shown are printed at each end of the title according to locations of the portraits.
