Jeff's Last Shift - Baker, Joseph E.

Issued from Bufford's Print Publishing House, 813 Washington St., Boston, Mass., 1865. One of the less outlandish variations on the popular theme of Jefferson Davis's capture by Union soldiers. In a wooded setting Davis, wearing a bonnet and dress and wielding a Bowie knife, tries unsuccessfully to flee from three armed Union soldiers. One soldier grabs Davis's arm, while the others point their weapons at him. A woman, possibly Davis's wife, raises her hands in alarm. The quotation at bottom, attributed to Mrs. Davis, reads: "The men had better not provoke the President as he might hurt some of 'em." Commentary by Library of Congress.
