- The abolition catastrophe. Or the November smash-up
Election of 1864. Republican A. Lincoln defeated Dem. George B. McClellan and his early peace platform. This pro-McClellan cartoon shows "Little Mac" in the cab of the "Union" train, which has a clear track to the White House. Lincoln's "Abolitionism" train with its cargo of Cabinet members and abolitionists has just smashed against the rock of "Confiscation," "Emancipation" etc. that are piled across the track.
