Lot 0761 Details

Description
Political“True Picture of the Capture of Jeff Davis”

“JEFF DAVIS CAUGHT AT LAST. HOOP SKIRTS & SOUTHERN CHIVALRY,” c. 1865, Uncolored Lithograph by J.L. Magee, Philadelphia, PA, Extremely Fine.
11” x 15”, matted to 16” x 21”. Wonderful cartoon depiction of Jefferson Davis’s capture by Union troops who needle Davis (who is disguised in a dress): “The only true Picture of the Capture of Jeff Davis, from the account furnished by Col. Prichard of the 4th Mich. Cavalry...” Each figure has a balloon comment above their head: “Narry time! she’s the Bearded Lady! Laying around loose. Where’s Barnum?” Davis responds: “I think the United States Government could find something better to do, than to be hunting Women and children.” The soldier pointing his rifle at Davis exclaims: “Halloa! Boots and Spurs on a Woman? drop that bucket and hood, or I’ll drop you quicker than a Dutch lunch can slide down a Bummers windpipe.” Very fine and clean, toned light brown.
