11” x 14” uncolored lithograph is signed in the print, “Giles,” and was “Published at 111 Nassau St., N.Y.” Another version of a scathing satirical depiction of the capture of Confederate President Jefferson Davis--who reportedly sought to escape Union troops by dressing up as a woman, while his wife scolded the soldiers. (Apparently this was part of a myth created by Union soldiers). Caption below illustration reads: “His last official act ‘The adoption of a new rebel uniform.’ He attempts to ‘Clear his Skirts,’ but finds it ‘All up in Dixie.’” Light toning.
