Political cartoon, 3-7-1860
This anonymous cartoon, addressed to Davis, plays on Davis's argument that black slavery in the South was the same as the oppression of poor whites in the North. The writer of the cartoon declares that he would like to throw off his shackles of "white slavery" in the North and move to warmer climes (Nicaragua) to bring slavery to the people of Nicaragua.
Addressed to Jefferson Davis, this satirical cartoon derides the logic underlying U.S. Southern imperialism in Latin America and the promotion of slavery in Nicaragua.
