Title:

Lincoln and the Banjo CDV - carte de visite of political cartoon, circa 1862

Creator/Contributor:

Online Archive of California

Abstract:

Carte de visite of political cartoon lampooning Lincoln who is shown picking a banjo, with a straw hat and the Emancipation Proclamation in his satchel. Elements of the press spun a simple story of Lincoln, who was visiting the troops at Antietam, October 1862. Ward Hill Lamon sang a few of Lincoln's favorite songs to him as they traveled, and the incident was blown out of proportion to suggest Lincoln's indifference to the casualties of the Battle of Antietam [Above derived from dealer description]
