Jeff. Davis' Coat of "Alms"
Illustrated Civil War envelopes with patriotic symbols, slogans and cartoons, mostly Northern, including a few Southern ones.
Crude parody of a coat of arms for Jefferson Davis. The motto Oh! Let Me Alone" appears at the top of the shield. A skull and crossbones appear below the motto. The skull has a crown on it. A whiskey bottle appears below the skull and crossbones. Three alternating color stripes are used to create the background. A rattlesnake is used to create a border for the shield, except for the portion that contains the motto."
