Patriotic cover 2, spanking



 The behind on the far left says "Wigfall" while the other two say "Wise" and "Davis." They obviously refer to Louis Wigfall, Henry Wise and Jefferson Davis. With those three names mentioned, this likely was created early in the war, before names like Robert E. Lee emerged, even though it refers to the "end" of the rebellion. That may have been a sign of wishful thinking about a quick war, and is obviously a pun for the side of the individuals it is showing.

  1. I believe you mean Jefferson F. Davis of Mississippi and president of the CSA. A common error. Jefferson C. could, to some folks, warrant the same treatment!
