Is Coming: Southern Menagerie
Manuscripts Collection, Georgetown University Library, Booth Family Center for Special Collections, Washington, D.C.
Illustrated Civil War envelopes with patriotic symbols, slogans and cartoons, mostly Northern, including a few Southern ones.
Three circus cages, flying the Confederate flag, are heading north on a road going to Boston. They are passing a road marker. The first circus cage contains The Striped Davis". The second cage contains "The Old Bear-Re-Gard". The lettering on the third cage is illegible. The phrase "Entered according to act of Congress, in the year 1861, by J.E. Hayes in the Clerk's Office in the District Court in the District of Massachusetts" appears at the bottom of the image."
