Abstract

Another version of Jefferson Davis's capture by Union cavalry. (See "The Chas-ed "Old Lady" of the Confederacy," no. 1865-11.) The image appears on the cover of a musical piece dedicated to Davis's captor, "Lieut. Col. D. B. [sic] Pritchard, 5th Mich. Cavalry," Davis, in a dress and bonnet and clutching a Bowie knife, flees through the woods with Union troops in close pursuit. One federal soldier has fallen down in his attempt to catch Davis.
