That Feed Won't Do
Illustrated Civil War envelopes with patriotic symbols, slogans and cartoons, mostly Northern, including a few Southern ones.
Soldier-farmer, who is in full uniform with a straw hat is giving feed (bonds) to a mother pig (Confederacy). The mother pig is in turn feeding its piglets (the individual states of the Confederacy). Three piglets (the border states) are on the wrong side of the fence. Two of the piglets, Maryland and Missouri, are being attacked by two dogs (United States). The third piglet, Kentucky, looks on folornly knowing that it will be attacked by the dogs next.
