Educator's Guide: The Arts: Political Cartoon #2

Political Cartoon #2
Caption: Manager Lincoln. "Ladies and Gentlemen, I regret to say that the Tragedy, entitled The Army of the Potomac, has been withdrawn on account of Quarrels among the leading Performers, and I have substituted three new and striking Farces or Burlesques, one entitled The Repulse at Vicksburg, by the well-known, popular favorite, E.M. Stanton, Esq., and the others, The Loss of the Harriet Lane and The Exploits of the Alabama-a very sweet thing in Farces, I assure you-by the Veteran Composer, Gideon Welles."

(Unbounded Applause by the Copperheads.)
