|Title:||The True Issue Or "That's What's The Matter", circa 1864|
|Description:||The True Issue Or "That's What's The Matter", circa 1864. In a rare pro-Democrat cartoon presidential aspirant George Brinton McClellan is portrayed as the intermediary between Abraham Lincoln and Confederacy president Jefferson Davis. Gen. McClellan is in the center acting as a go-between in a tug-of-war over a "Map of the United States" engaged in by Lincoln (left) and Davis. He holds the two men by their lapels and asserts, "The Union must be preserved at all hazards!" Lincoln tugs at the northern side of the map, saying, "No peace without abolition." Davis pulls at the southern portion, advocating, "No peace without Separation!!"|
