Civil War - 1864 Dgn 507

Sc. 4910-11 Civil War - 1864 on a 5”x7 Dragon Card reproducing an 1864 political cartoon contrasting Democratic presidential candidate George B. McClellan’s military accomplishments against those of his successor as commander of the Army of the Potamac, Gen. Ulysses S. Grant. Lincoln badly needed some Union victories if he was to win reelection. The cartoon references the siege of Petersburg, so the pair of stamps has the Petersburg Digital Color Postmark. Great for a Civil War- or military-on-stamps collection!
