Photograph Description: 5 to one ha Related Names: Wiswell, William. Date Created Published: Cincinnati ; 1861. Summary: Another show of Northern optimism in the early months of the Lincoln administration. Uncle Sam approaches from the left holding a bayonet, causing five Southern soldiers to flee in panic to the right. In their haste to retreat the Confederates drop their flag, muskets, a hat, and a boot. A black child and two black men, one fiddling, watch with obvious glee from the background. Prominent in the center foreground are a mound marked '76' bearing an American flag and a crowing cock. In the background are the Capitol at Washington (left) and the palmetto trees of South Carolina (right). Notes: Entered.. by W. Wiswell.. Ohio, June 8th 1861.
