Description

This cartoon lithograph was removed from a French periodical 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!" Part of The Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection, courtesy of the Indiana State Museum
