Frank Leslie Cartoon "Winning and Wearing"

Frank Leslie Cartoon "Winning and Wearing" | Print | Wisconsin Historical Society
Cartoon appearing in <i>Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper</i>, Page 144. During the American Civil War (1861-1865), the Copperheads nominally favored the Union and strongly opposed the war, for which they blamed abolitionists, and they demanded immediate peace and resisted draft laws. They wanted Lincoln and the Republicans ousted from power, seeing the president as a tyrant who was destroying American republican values with his despotic and arbitrary actions. Some Copperheads tried to persuade Union soldiers to desert. They talked of helping Confederate prisoners of war seize their camps and escape. They sometimes met with Confederate agents and took money. The Confederacy encouraged their activities whenever possible. Most Democratic party leaders, however, repelled Confederate advances.
