WARNING: The below 19th century cartoon includes racist slurs.
We open this year’s coverage of African American History Month, with the above cartoon broadsheet, published by G.W. Bromley & Co., on July 1st, 1864. It is part of a series of anti-Lincoln / anti-Abolition cartoons, published by Bromley, on how the abolition of slavery, would lead to (among other things) that horror to whites of the time — interracial marriage! Pictured in the cartoon are Republican abolitionists President Abraham Lincoln, Senator Charles Sumner, and editor Horace Greeley.
Click on the above picture, to view the broadsheet in detail, and be able read its word balloons & captions.
