After a Little While. New York: Charles Magnus, [ca. 1862]. Broadside.

This hand-colored lithograph was produced by Charles Magnus (1826-1900), a prominent New York City lithographer who came to the United States from Germany in 1848. Magnus, an ardent supporter of the Union cause during the Civil War, issued city views, sheet music, envelopes, maps, scenic prints, playing cards, and valentines. This broadside, produced early in the Civil War, depicts President Lincoln mounted on a horse as a more dominant figure than his Confederate counterpart, Jefferson Davis. In the background of this print, both Northern and Southern fanatics are being put in jail, possibly to convey a message that Lincoln’s middle-of-the-road approach to the South and slavery would prevail in the end.
