"Behold the Man! He said that Cotton would surely make them independant! But see, my friend, the 'string he's got on,' a fit adornment to the end on't"
Illustrated Civil War envelopes with patriotic symbols, slogans and cartoons, mostly Northern, including a few Southern ones.
One man, representing the Union, is executing another man, representing the Confederacy, by kicking away the cotton bale that is supporting the man who is about to be hung on the gallows. A tree labeled Liberty" is in the background. A federal (bald) eagle is perched on the "Liberty" tree. An emaciated lion, probably representing the United Kingdom, looks on helplessly. The phrase "Entered according to act of Congress, 1861, by Brown & Ryan, in the Clerk's Office of the Southern District of N.Y." appears to the left of the image."
