Columbia Rules the Ocean
Illustrated Civil War envelopes with patriotic symbols, slogans and cartoons, mostly Northern, including a few Southern ones.
Columbia, in Eastern American Indian (Powhatan?) clothing is standing on a rock outcroping in the middle of an ocean. Columbia, wearing a Union flag draped around her, is holding a sword in her right hand and holding up scales in her left hand. A Federal (Bald) eagle, holding up a Federal shield by its beak, appears behind and to the right of Columbia.
