This patriotic cover (envelope featuring images and slogans) was printed during the Civil War to promote the antislavery cause and depicts a series of vignettes on the demise of the Confederacy: Jeff Davis retires ... Stephens accompanies Jeff ... Pickens lamenting the attack on Sumter ... Floyd in a fix ... Wigfall & Mason mourning o'er their fate ... Darkey delivering a lecture on honesty ... Scott's aids disposing of secession.
