Free Photo: The Commander-in-Chief Conciliating the Soldier's Votes on the Battlefield
Description: Image of a bitterly anti-Lincoln cartoon, based on slanderous newspaper reports of the President's callous disregard of the misery of Union troops at the front. The story that Lincoln had joked on the field at Antietam appeared in the "New York World." Holding a plaid Scotch cap Lincoln stands on the battlefield at Antietam, which is littered with Union dead and wounded. He instructs his friend Marshal Lamon, who stands with his back toward the viewer and his hand over his face, to "sing us Picayune Butler,' or something else that's funny." Suggest a better description.
