Title: The Copperhead Plan for Subjugating the South

Year: 1864

Creator: Frank Bellew, Harpers Weekly

Description: A ragged man sits yawning on a couch stating, “O! Dear I can’t stand this much longer.”
A group of several men and a donkey address him saying, “Please come back, ” “We will do everything you want, ” “We are very humble, ” and “He Haw.”
The Copperheads felt that war had failed to bring reunion, so they ran a platform of peace with McClellan as their presidential candidate. It was believed that these Democrats would do anything for peace.
