Where is Beauregard?
Illustrated Civil War envelopes with patriotic symbols, slogans and cartoons, mostly Northern, including a few Southern ones.
Elephant carry a banner with the words Where is Beauregard?" on it. The image could have two different meanings. The first meaning being political in that the image is supposed to symbolize ever-victorious armies under Union generals. The second meaning might be a clever play on the phrase "to see the elephant", which meant to see combat. The image might be implying that Beauregard's troops will run the first time they see Union armies. Both meanings could be used without contradicting each other."
