The Jumping Man
Illustrated Civil War envelopes with patriotic symbols, slogans and cartoons, mostly Northern, including a few Southern ones.
The first image is of a man with a sword jumping at a line of Union infantry who have bayonets pointed at him. The caption There was a man in our town, And he was wonderous wise, He jumped into a bramble-bush, And scratched out both his eyes." appears below the image. The second image is of the same man, now swordless and ragged, jumping at a line of devils who have pitchforks pointed at him. The caption "Now when he saw his eyes were out, With all his might and main, He jumped into a another bush, And scratched them in again." appears below the image. The phrase "Eamuel C. Upham, 310 Chestnut Street"."
