Blood Money; or How Southern Rebels Encourage Piracy.
Illustrated Civil War envelopes with patriotic symbols, slogans and cartoons, mostly Northern, including a few Southern ones.
Two pirates, one armed with two pistols and the other armed with a rifle, are bringing a shackled soldier labelled U.S." to Jefferson Davis. Jefferson Davis is sitting in a chair in formal attire. A third pirate is dragging a dead individual, who might be wrapped up in the Union flag. A large Confederate flag is hanging in the background. The words "Southern Bounty" appear above to the left of the image. The caption "First Pirate to Jeff. Davis - We want our $25 for this live Northerner. Second Pirate to Jeff. Davis - Yes, and I want $20 for this dead one" appears below the image."
