Description

TITLE:  The national game. Three "outs" and one "run" CALL NUMBER:  PGA - Currier & Ives--National game... (B size) [P&P] REPRODUCTION NUMBER:  LC-DIG-ppmsca-09311 (digital file from original print)LC-USZC4-12942 (color film copy transparency)LC-USZ62-12425 (b&w film copy neg.) RIGHTS INFORMATION:  No known restrictions on publication. SUMMARY:  A pro-Lincoln satire, deposited for copyright weeks before the 1860 presidential election. The contest is portrayed as a baseball game in which Lincoln has defeated (left to right) John Bell, Stephen A. Douglas, and John C. Breckinridge. Lincoln (right) stands with his foot on "Home Base," advising the others, "Gentlemen, if any of you should ever take a hand in another match at this game, remember that you must have a good bat' and strike a fair ball' to make a clean score' & a home run.'" His "good bat" is actually a wooden rail labeled "Equal Rights and Free Territory." Lincoln wears a belt inscribed "Wide Awake Club." (See no. 1860-14 on the Wide-Awakes.) A skunk stands near the other candidates, signifying that they have been "skunk'd." Breckinridge (center), a Southern Democrat, holds his nose, saying, "I guess I'd better leave for Kentucky, for I smell something strong around here, and begin to think, that we are completely skunk'd.'" His bat is labeled "Slavery Extension" and his belt "Disunion Club." At far left John Bell of the Constitutional Union party observes, "It appears to me very singular that we three should strike foul' and be put out' while old Abe made such a good lick.' Bell's belt says "Union Club," and his bat "Fusion." Regular Democratic nominee Douglas replies, "That's because he had that confounded rail, to strike with, I thought our fusion would be a short stop' to his career." He grasps a bat labeled "Non Intervention." MEDIUM:  1 print on wove paper : lithograph ; 29 x 34 cm (image) CREATED/PUBLISHED:  [New York : Currier & Ives], c1860. CREATOR: Currier & Ives.
