About this Item

Record Details

Title
"The irrepressible conflict".
Date
[1860]
Notes
A sinking lifeboat rocks ten white men and one African American man, who wears "Discord's Patent Life Preserver." A white man on shore urges the group to jettison the African American man rather than William H. Seward, whom Horace Greeley and Francis P. Blair are about to push into the drink. Abraham Lincoln mans the tiller, standing with one knee on the helmsman's seat. Cf. Gale.
"Entered according to Act of Congress in the Year 1860 by Currier & Ives, in the Clerk's Office of the District Court for the Southern Distt. of N.Y."
Probably drawn by Louis Maurer.
