Worship of the North
Title: Worship of the North
Creator: Adalbert Johann Volck, Etching
Description: In an elaborate scene of idol worship, Northern leaders are shown sacrificing a white man to a shrine of The Negro. A black man sits atop this shrine, labeled “Chicago Platform, ” with carved busts of Lincoln as a serpent carved into its base. Henry Ward Beecher uses a sacrificial knife, Charles Sumner holds a torch, and Horace Greeley holds a censer from which snakes slither. John Brown, with a pike, is represented as St. Ossawatomie. General H.W. Halleck, General Winfield Scott, General David Hunter, Governor John Andrew of Massachusetts; and Harriet Beecher Stowe are all present in the crowd.
